"I believe if you don't vote, you can't complain. You're either part of the problem or part of the solution."
This primary day Political experts expect turnout to be low-to-moderate at best.
While there are some interesting state races and congressional races to watch, the judge of elections here says there is a lot to keep potential votes away.
"The weather will play a small factor
but also I think the negative campaigning is gonna have an issue. It
actually turns people off and depresses the turnout and I think there's
not that many races that are exciting" said Joe Loftus, Judge of
Elections District 6-4
At the Myrtle Street United Methodist Church in Scranton turnout was much the same.
Most voters had a specific race or reason.
"First off, I think it's my civic duty to vote and I also wanted to throw my
support to Kathleen Kane, a local girl running for Attorney General"
One main issue seemed to be on voter's minds no matter whether they're casting a republican or democratic primary ballot.
"My main concern is jobs." said Jack Solsman of Dunmore, "This area is a
hard-pressed area for jobs. We have young people leaving this area
because there's no place to work."
