Coeur d’Alene Turnout … 40%?

I'm trying to get an official turnout percentage for the city elections in Coeur d'Alene Tuesday. I'm guessing around 40 percent, based on fact that 8,407 of the 20,869 (pre-election, according to Kootenai County Clerk's Office) registered city voters cast ballots in the mayor's race. Unofficially, that's 40.28% of the vote. Which is fairly high for a city election. But you wonder what happened to the other 60%. OTOH, I'm not sure how same-day signups would affect that figure. In Post Falls, I used the same math approach to calculate that the turnout was about 19.4%, based on 2,274 voters casting ballots in mayor's race, from a pool of 11,709 registered voters.
