County primary turnout comes up deuces

Twenty-two point twenty.two

That's the percenage of turnout for those areas of Spokane County that had something on their ballot in the August primary.

About halfway between one voter in five and one voter in four.  Not quite abysmal, but definitely not very impressive.

Precinct-by-precinct, the results were pretty mixed. Highest turnout was in the town of Latah, where 72 of its 125 voters sent back a ballot, for a turnout of 57.6 percent. A three-way race for a town council seat was the big draw there.

Lowest turnout was in a northwest precinct of the city of Spokane Valley, which includes Mirabeau Park and homes south of the river. It managed only 60 ballots back of the 868 sent out, for 6.91 percent.
