How low is turnout in Virginia today? Traditionally, voters come in three waves – the morning pre-work crowd, the lunch crowd, and the after-work crowd (and note that Virginia polls close at 7 p.m.). I am told that as of 10 a.m. – after the morning wave — Chesterfield had a turnout of 1.2 percent, Danville less than 1 percent, and Montgomery County was 1.4 percent.
Obviously, midday and evening crowds could be larger, as the morning voters faced miserable rain. But at this point, turnout in the neighborhood of 4 percent statewide certainly remains a possibility.
