Voters throughout Inyo County will have a chance to redeem themselves this fall after the dismal turnout at the polls this past June.
With only one local race affecting voters of one district and close to a dozen incumbents running unchallenged for re-election, Inyo County saw one of the lowest voter turnout totals in recent history. According to the final results from the June 3 Primary, only 3,916 of the county’s 9,506 registered voters participated in the election, for a 41.2 percent turnout.
The participation state wide was worse, with California recording a 24 percent voter turnout.
