Franklin County primary election information

Posted: Updated:

County leaders are making sure ballots are ready to be counted for the upcoming primary elections in Franklin County.

 Supervisors say they want to remind everyone that the ballots should be post-marked before or on August 17th.

  Today members of the Secretary of State's office came down to watch the tabulating machines get tested. County leaders say it's an important process to make sure every vote is properly dealt with.  

"The logic and accuracy test actually tests the functionality of the equipment and the accuracy of the equipment that's tabulating the ballots and so it's very important people can watch that," Franklin County Auditor Zona Lenhart said.

Supervisors tell us they expect a turn out of about 35 percent this year, but of course always hope for it to be even higher.
