Turnout out was definitely low in the 40th District special election today, according to a poll worker we know who was working in McCandless. That should help the candidate (Republican Randy Vulakovich or Democrat Sharon Brown) who had the better get-out-the-vote effort -- we assume that was Vulakovich, but who knows.

We also hear turnout was very, very low in the Butler County section of the district but we'll have to watch final returns to tell. Good numbers might not be available until tomorrow.

Here's what the poll worker wrote us:

Anecdotally, it seemed as if many more women were voting than men, but since we don't keep those stats on election day, it would be tough to assess if that was true, and the impact. 

Apparently two robo calls went out for the D, but the R had a lot more money and apparently did a slew of mailings.  There was also apparently a Democrats for Randy group.
