The number of people who cast ballots in Warren County was on trend with the rest of the state.

Warren County Clerk Dot Owens says voter turnout was extremely low.

She says primaries almost always have fewer voters.

This one especially though because there were no local positions being voted upon.

Everyone was vying for a statewide seat.

But she says primaries are still important to vote in because they decide who heads to the general election, and ultimately who takes office.

She was shocked at how few people actually came out to vote today.

"We've heard 100, 125. I have not heard if anybody has even reached 200 and I have 64 precincts. It has been really, really poor," said Owens.

Low voter turnout was easy to see at polling centers like the one at Greenwood High School here in Bowling Green.

Polling place staff said the entire day was about the same, voters coming in few and far between.
