Voter Turnout "Embarrassment"

Predictions by Secretary of State Elaine Walker that just 10 percent of registered voters would go to the polls Tuesday turned out to be on target. About 10.3 percent of registered voters voted in Tuesday’s primary election. There were just seven races between the Democratic and Republican tickets. “I think the turnout today was an embarrassment,” Walker told the Daily News late Tuesday evening.
