voting Very Low Turnout Predicted For Massachusetts Primary Elections Next WeekBOSTON (CBS) – Massachusetts Secretary of State Bill Galvin thinks turnout next Tuesday for the primary elections could be less than 20-percent.

Despite the primaries for governor, Galvin said the lack of local races might keep people away from the ballot box September 9.

“I’m very concerned. We were required to move the primary a week earlier to comply with federal law, so it may take people a bit by surprise, especially with a late summer heat, ” he told WBZ NewsRadio 1030.

“There hasn’t been a great sign of interest so far.”

Galvin also points out that more than 53-percent of Massachusetts voters are registered as independent and they’re less likely to vote in a primary.

Independents are eligible to cast ballots in the Democratic and Republican party races, but Galvin said most of them don’t.
