Only 10 percent turn out to cast their votes

Across the state, election officials said the primary was proceeding smoothly. Fayette County election coordinator Kitty Ware said turnout might hit 10 percent, if things picked up around lunchtime. If they didn't, then turnout might rival the 1999 low of 8.6 percent. Statewide, less than 10 percent of registered voters were expected to go to the polls.
