With only two contested local races on the ballot Tuesday, it was a slow day for Bulloch County poll workers, but a fast in and out for voters casting their ballots. When the votes were totaled at the Bulloch County Courthouse, the final numbers showed how slow it was: only 5,765 people cast ballots - 17.6 percent of registered voters. "[The turnout] has been less than what we expected," said Joyce Davis, a poll officer at the Statesboro Primitive Baptist Church precinct at noon on Tuesday.
