Putnam County Voter Turnout At 25 Percent

Putnam County election officials say that more than 10,000 of the county's voters participated in the primary election for sheriff, trustee, road supervisor and several other county-wide offices. That's just over 25 percent of the total number of registered voters in the county. The road supervisor's nomination went to Randy Jones, who will face independent candidate Harvey Summers in August. In the trustee's race, Freddie Nelson won a five-way contest for the Democratic nomination, while Michael D. Lane was the sole candidate on the Republican side. Meanwhile, sheriff David Andrews, county executive Kim Blaylock, and county clerk Wayne Nabors all effectively won re-election. You can view the full results here.
