Many Oconee County Republicans and Democrats Bypassed March 6 Presidential Primaries

2008 Primary as Standard

Only 27.7 percent of the registered voters in Oconee County turned out for the March 6 Presidential primaries, down from 48.6 percent four years ago, the official Statement of Votes Cast filed by the county Board of Elections and Registration office late last week shows.

Almost all of the votes cast—97.7 percent—were in the Republican primary, but even Republicans showed limited interest in the race.
