After a turnout of just 39% in the primary, Secretary of State Tom Schedler hopes for a bigger turn out for the November 21st runoff. Schedler says before the election, they predicted turnout anywhere from 45 to 50-percent and voters likely didn’t show up due to frustration with this election cycle or the major rainfall across the state.
