Langston Hughes precinct reports 22 percent turnout

April 8, 2009


The Langston Hughes precinct results were the final ones election officials counted.

Shew said the precinct was the busiest in the county with a 22 percent turnout. Poll workers faced a rush there just before the 7 p.m. closing time, so it took them longer to complete their job.

The Langston Hughes supervising judge became ill a few hours before the polls closed, and Shew’s office brought in a substitute. Poll workers wanted to take a little longer at the end of the day to make sure they were covering their bases.

“I’m fine with that,” Shew said. “They made sure they did everything right.”
