Election supervisor Pat Lanier Jones said she was pleased with the voter turnout for Tuesday's mid-term election. Earlier in the day, she predicted a 35 percent turnout for Bulloch County and she was "tickled" to be proven wrong. Nearly 44 percent of registered voters in Bulloch County made the trek to the polls to cast their ballots - that's 14,630 of 33,244 registered voters.
