Final voter turnout numbers for this month’s election have been released from the Secretary of State’s office today.  Connie Lawson says 58 percent of Hoosier registered voters went to the polls during the general election.  That is 2.6 of the 4.5 million registered voters.  Lawson’s office says the state fell short of the record 62 percent voter turnout reported in the 2008 presidential election.

Wells County – in the IPR listening area – had the highest countywide voter turnout.  72 percent of registered voters cast ballots.  Southeast Indiana’s Scott County had the lowest turnout at just 46 percent.
