Johnson County voter turnout

As of Wednesday, the Johnson County Election Office says voter turnout for the Nov. 2 election was 24.88%, a figure that will likely go up a bit more as mail-in and provisional ballots are added to the total in coming days. File image.

More Johnson County voters went to the polls or mailed in ballots for the 2021 general election than in any other recent odd year election.

Before Tuesday, county election officials predicted a 20% turnout among registered voters, but actual turnout comfortably surpassed that estimate.
