All three localities averaged between 11 to 13 percent.. and officials expect that number to grow to 17 to 20 percent when the polls close.
In Roanoke City, which boasts more Democratic voters than Republicans-- authorities think voter turnout during THIS Republican primary will be heavy because it's such a high profile campaign.
