With the polls closed across the state, election officials are hard at work tallying results.
The voter turnout at College Heights Elementary School, 721 N. Atherton St., was smaller than that of the 2008 presidential election, Ruth Merritt, judge of elections for Precinct 17, said. The final vote count for Precinct 17 was 479, compared to 539 four years ago, Merritt said.
The last hour of polling was fairly slow, which is typical for this polling station, Merritt said.
