Sparse Turnout in Mississippi

Turnout was an issue during Tuesday's Mississippi primaries.

There are no official turnout totals for the state, but all indications are that it was dismal.

One large precinct in Lauderdale County, the Martin precinct, with almost 800 registered voters, didn't see a single voter all day.

Only 350 people voted in Lauderdale County.

Statewide, there were only congressional primaries on the ballot. Those primaries did not involve incumbents, who will be on the November ballot.
