MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Vermont’s secretary of state is rolling out new, live, web-based reporting of primary results.

But Jim Condos says his office won’t be able to answer some of the questions many primary watchers will be asking Tuesday night.

They’ll want write-in votes being sought by non-party candidates in the Republican gubernatorial primary and the Democratic primary for lieutenant governor.

Condos says his office will be posting results on the web as they come in from town and city election officials around the state.

But he says write-in votes will only be reported as a lump sum, without information on which candidates got the most.

So far, turnout has been light. For example, Vermont Public Radio reported that by early afternoon, 171 of Williston’s more than 8100 voters had voted.
