Voter turnout slightly higher for April election

Lebanon City Council and school board races helped draw voters to the polls Tuesday. Laclede County Clerk Linda Cansler said the turnout of 12 percent was good for an April election, which typically attracts about 10 percent of registered voters. “It’s not as high as it has been, but the highest one that compared to it was 2016,” she said. The election turnout started slowly but picked up by the afternoon, according to Cansler. “We had a steady run of people so our judges didn’t really get bogged down at any one time,” she said.
