Turnout is super slow for today’s Democratic primary for citywide Board of Education seats and four district contests for City Council. Just over 1400 votes had been cast citywide as of noon, one hour before the halfway point of voting. The city has roughly 45,000 registered Democrats.
Black Rock School, as usual, was running well ahead of the rest of the city precincts in voting. Unless there’s a surge of voting in the afternoon and evening hours the turnout citywide will be hard pressed to hit 10 percent.
