Low voter turnout expected for spring primary

Beloit resident Lowell Holtz’s name on the ballot isn’t expected to do much for voter turnout in the spring primary election this Tuesday.

City Clerk Lori Stottler says there could be a slight increase in interest from the education community but she’s still expecting only a 3% voter turnout.

Holtz is running against John Humphries and Incumbent Tony Evers. It’s the only contest on the ballot.

Stottler says because of the expected low voter turnout, she’s consolidating polling places. Voters in wards one through 12 should go to the Beloit Historical Society, and wards 13 through 25 at Central Christian Church.
