While voter participation in today’s primary election has been reported as light in most of Iowa, turn-out has been high in the Iowa City area according to Johnson County Auditor Tom Slockett. “We had a record number of early votes and we have the second-highest turn-out on record,” Slockett says. There are strong local races for the Johnson County Board of Supervisors and for County Attorney. Sixty-seven-year-old Johnson County Attorney J. Patrick White has held that office since 1983, but did not seek re-election and the County Auditor says there’s been a hot race to replace White.
