INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson says only 30 percent of Indiana’s 4.5 million registered voters cast votes in the Nov. 4 general election.

Lawson said Tuesday that the turnout of 1.39 million voters compared with 39 percent turnout in 2002, the last Indiana general election without races for governor or U.S. Senate on the ballot.

Lawson says eastern Indiana’s Jay County had the highest turnout rate at 52 percent, and southern Indiana’s Martin, Ohio, Perry, Pike and Spencer counties all had at least 48 percent turnout rates.

Johnson County, south of Indianapolis, had the lowest turnout among counties at 24 percent. Marion and Miami counties had 25 percent turnout.
