Precincts throughout the county saw steady lines all day but saw fewer voters Tuesday than in the 2008 general election.
Of the 70,066 registered voters in the county, 39,575 cast ballots for a voter turnout percentage of 56.48.
Hardin County Clerk Kenny Tabb thought the turnout would be higher, closer to 65 percent turnout.
“We’ve had a pretty good day, overall,” he said.
The 2008 election saw 40,456 votes and a 62.8 percent.
