WIREGRASS, Ala (WDHN)—After a successful 2022 mid-term election, it’s time to look at some of the local counties, and how they faired at the polls.
According to Geneva County Probate Judge Toby Seay, the turnout for the 2022 general elections in Geneva County was higher than anticipated.
Geneva County had a total of 39% registered voter turnout.
Judge Seay hopes the turnout for the 2024 presidential elections will be even larger than this year.
In Coffee County, nearly 38% of registered voters turned out to the polls.
Coffee County Probate Judge Jodee Thompson says she is not satisfied with that number, but it is higher than the primary and runoffs from last spring.
Houston County had a turnout of 34% of registered voters come to the polls, a number that Houston County Probate Judge Patrick Davenport says he wishes would have been higher.
Judge Davenport says he hoped for a voter turnout closer to 40% after the 2018 elections had a turnout of 43%.
