LAS VEGAS (AP) — Turnout was light, but not the lowest ever as voters in Nevada trickled to the polls to decide primary contests for governor, lieutenant governor, four congressional districts and various state and local contests.

Secretary of State Ross Miller reported Tuesday that turnout was just under 19.2 percent.

Miller had projected turnout would be from 15 percent to 20 percent — leaving a chance Nevada could post the lowest primary election turnout in 52 years.

The record low since 1962 was 18 percent in 2008.

As ballots were tallied in unofficial results, Miller's office reported that 128,092 early and mail-in absentee votes were cast, or 57 percent of the total 221,503.

The state has just under 471,000 registered Democrats and just over 407,000 registered Republicans.
