Windom precinct judges say voter turnout was steady, big
As the clock ticked down to the final minutes of voting at the Windom Community Center, election judges finally had a chance to relax.
It had been that kind of day.
"We were busy right up to about 7:30 p.m.," one judge said.
A short distance away, Marlene Nordquist, an election judge since 2008, nodded.
"We have had a very busy day," Nordquist said. "There were lots of voters, lots of new voters. More young people than I've seen for a while."
All told, there were 1,634 votes cast today at the Community Center. That's 428 short of Windom's total voter turnout for the 2016 election, but this year's absentee ballots have not yet been counted.
