MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Vermont’s voter turnout appears to have hit a record low in the 2014 elections.

With 99 percent of precincts reporting, The Associated Press calculates that the final turnout figure will be about 193,500.

That’s about 43.6 percent of the roughly 443,400 registered voters in the state.

That figure is eight-tenths of a percentage point below the previous low of 44.4 percent of voters who turned out in 1978.

In both that year and this year, there was no presidential race and no U.S. Senate contest in Vermont.
