Voter turnout Tuesday 41.4 percent

Voter turnout in Yamhill County's Tuesday primary rested at 41.4 percent.

Compared to recent years, that's mid-range participation.

Turnout rose to 57.4 percent in 2008 and fell to a record-low 35 percent in 2012. It came in at 47.5 percent in 2010.

Republican turnout surpassed Democratic 50.6 to 46 percent, with non-affiliated lagging back at 25.6 percent. Because the aim of primaries is to choose major party nominees, non-affiliated voting historically runs only about half that of affiliated voting.
