Normal turnout predicted for Ariz. primary Tuesday

Turnout is expected to be between 20-25 percent of registered voters, the range seen in Arizona’s recent primary elections.

That’s according to Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett.

He says turnout could be boosted by dissatisfaction with incumbents and the political structure in general.

Bennett adds that dampening effects could include some races turning out to be less competitive than expected and the state’s forwarding its primary election by one week.

Arizona permits independents to voter in the state primary, but they can vote on races for only one party.

Bennett says early voting reportedly is down, perhaps because some voters may be waiting to decide choices in several hot races until the past moment.
