Election officials expect only about one in three of the city's registered voters to cast ballots in today's council elections.

That's well behind the 29 percent who had voted by mid-afternoon four years ago.
In that election, almost half of the city's voters eventually cast their ballots. This year we'll be lucky if the number exceeds 30 percent.
