In 2010, 14 percent of Catawba County's registered voters hit the polls for the Primary election.

Tuesday, even more of the county's voters turned out.

"We had a steady stream of people all day long,” said Todd Rudisill, chief judge election officer of the Precinct 40 in West Newton. “But it was just a small stream.”

The turnout was close to 16 percent, 15,776 ballots, according to officials with the Board of Elections. That is nearly a two percent increase from the comparable election four years ago.
