Boone sees record voter turnout

Zionsville — Nearly two-thirds of Boone County’s registered voters cast ballots in Tuesday, Nov. 6’s election, 578 more than in 2008.

This year 66 percent of the 42,654 registered voters participated; in 2008, 73 percent of the 36,742 registered voters went to polls.

A hint that the turnout would exceed 2008’s came with absentee ballots; 8,451 people chose that option this year, compared to 7,927 in 2008.

More than half as many people — more than 4,000 — came to the Boone County Courthouse to vote early as cast absentee votes in the last presidential election.

Voters waited in line for up to two hours in Zionsville Tuesday; some voters waited 50 minutes to vote in Whitestown.
