Trying to predict voter turnout difficult in election year like no other

As voters get set to go to the polls for a general presidential election like no other, state and local officials are a little wary about predicting exactly how many people will actually turn out to vote Tuesday.

Record registration numbers are being reported across the state but Scotts Bluff County Clerk Vera Dulaney says it is still difficult to determine whether that will translate into a better than normal turnout.

Dulaney says normally the percentage figure for a local general election turnout is in the forties. Early voting, which was over 3,000 ballots as of Friday, is expected to comprise around 15% of the overall ballots cast.

She reminds Scottsbluff precinct one voters that they will be voting at the Zion Church Tuesday after voting at a different location during the primary due to a fire at the church.
