Pike County Clerk Melissa Kempke is predicting a countywide voter turnout of 45 percent, or 3,800 voters, in next Tuesday’s Primary Election.
“When we start talking about predicting voter turnout I look to our absentees, which are up from four years ago,” Kempke said. As of Monday afternoon, more than 151 absentee ballots had already been cast in the election that will decide the winner of the Pike County Collector of Revenue position in the Democratic Party primary, the Republican Party’s nominee for both Circuit Court Judge of the 45th Circuit and 18th Senatorial District.
The ballot in the August election also features two petition initiatives, known as Proposition A and Proposition 911.
