Compared to the last primary election held two years ago; and down several from the 2010 primary vote.

As of the 5 o'clock deadline yesterday afternoon, a total of 220 persons had voted absentee with the Grundy County Clerks office. That included 42 who went to the Courthouse yesterday. Five additional absentees have been requested but not yet voted and returned to the county clerks' office.

This years' absentee count is down from the 317 that were cast in the 2012 primary election in Grundy County. The primaries for 2014 and 2012 had different county offices to be filled. This year, there just one race for five county offices.

In 2012, six of the seven Grundy county offices had races. There also was one issue in both elections: the countywide local use tax is on the ballot today; and there was a city of Trenton sales tax for fire improvement services two years ago.

When comparing to the 2010 primary – those with the same offices up for election as there are today – there were 277 absentee ballots cast in Grundy County. That's 57 more than the number of absentees to be counted for todays' election. Voting continues until 7 o'clock tonight at the nine usual polling locations in Grundy County.
