Turner wants votes impounded
June 26, 2012 - Chris Morris
With voter turnout low, Congressman Bob Turner, one of three Republican candidates who squared off in today's U.S. Senate primary, is expected to issue an order to impound ballots statewide "to ensure the integrity of every vote in what may be shaping up as the lowest turnout in New York primary history," his campaign announced in a press release moments ago.
"There has never before been a June federal primary in New York, and many voters are away with their school age children who were just let out for summer vacation," the release said.
Turner spokeswoman Jessica Proud said statewide turnout is reportedly "extremely low." "The Turner campaign is committed to ensuring the integrity of every vote and impounding the ballots is the best way to achieve that for the good of all the campaigns," she said.
