Election Day voting changing dynamic of results

In 2016 General Election, most of the local elections had been decided by the time the election day came –61.6 percent cast.  People discounted the effectiveness any flyers or ads placed in the last week before the election.

This primary is different. As of 5 p.m., the Election Day votes accounted for 45.3 percent of the votes cast.  Those last-minute ads and flyers will have an impact.
