From our Parth Shah:
Today I visited two polling places -- Normandy City Hall and Meramec Elementary School in Clayton -- to gauge turnout and see what issues voters are concerned with.
Turnout in primary elections is often low so I timed my visits during lunch when I hoped to find more people. From what I could see, turnout was thin at Normandy, at least in comparison to Clayton. Ironically, a campaigner at the elementary school said voter attendance there was less than what she expected. At the Normandy City Hall, the voters I spoke to were focused on the outcome of the county executive race. I met some vocal supporters and some vocal critics of Dooley.
In contrast, in Clayton, the voters I interviewed were eager to express their opinions on the various ballot measures. Three voters told me that they voted no on each amendment.
