Voter turnout appears low

With fewer than five hours left to vote, turnout appears low in today's school tax election.

As of 1:30 p.m., only 11.6 percent of voters in Marion's largest precinct had voted. The precinct that votes at the courthouse has 859 registered voters, and as of early this afternoon, only 100 people had cast a ballot. However, many voters will head to polls after school- and workdays end later today.

Results of the election can be found right here as polls close at 6 p.m.
