Despite a decent number of advance voters, turnout so far today for Barrow County's primaries has been below expectations. Ken Young, chairman of the Barrow County Republican Party, said he was surprised when he arrived at the Winder Community Center to vote during the lunch hour and there was hardly anyone else there.
"The lady said I had just missed a big bunch of people," Young said. "It's hard to tell. It seems to me like turnout may not be as high as we thought it would be."
Barrow County elections supervisor Monica Franklin confirmed Young's impression.
