Voter turnout up in Hillsborough, supervisor says



TAMPA -- Hillsborough County Supervisor of Elections Buddy Johnson reported that voter turnout in his county was brisk and significantly above what it was in the 2004 presidential preference primary, according to a prepared statement.

Although the pollworker phone bank has been very active with questions, no problems have been reported at polling places, Johnson's statement said.

Before polls opened at 7 a.m. today, about 60,000 people had already voted early in Hillsborough.
