The final number of ballots cast is not available, but based on the number of votes in the county general circuit court race, Blount County voter turnout was 25.5%.

This is probably a little higher than normal, but not enough to overcome the entrenched special interests that run Blount County politics and government.

Better than Knox County.

Better than Knox County. It's just a bad time to have an election, too hot, vacations, not enough on the ballot to gain peoples interest.
