Voter turnout in Brunswick County was good for a primary election, said Greg Bellamy, Brunswick County’s director of elections.
The unofficial tally Tuesday night showed a turnout of 23,573 voters or 33.6 percent of the county’s 70,139 registered voters.
Of that number, 16,808 voted in the Democratic primary, 6,690 in the Republican primary and 62 posted nonpartisan ballots.
Bellamy said the fact it was a presidential primary probably drew more voters.
“You had more candidates at the national, state and local level,” he said.
