Idaho election prediction: 80 percent turnout

Idaho Secretary of State Ben Ysursa is predicting 80 percent of registered voters will turn out to vote on Tuesday. “We are expecting a record turnout in numbers, at around 700,000 ballots cast,” he said. “This is higher than the previous record set in 2004 of 612,000.” Absentee and early voting around the state has been at record levels, and continues through 5 p.m. on Monday. Ysursa said heavy turnout along with new ballot counting equipment in many counties “will make for a long evening before final results will be available.”
