Fewer Johnson Countians showed up to the polls and mailed in ballots in Tuesday’s election than during the last midterm election, according to early data provided Thursday by the Johnson County Election Office.

Driving the news: The county election office says preliminary results from Tuesday show a voter turnout of 56-57%, a number that would put this year’s election somewhere between the previous two midterm elections.
