In 2003, voter turnout for the November general election was 44.1 percent in Jessamine County.
County Clerk Eva McDaniel said that was good, but feels it should be better.
"I'm hoping for at least 51 percent," she said of next Tuesday's 2007 general election.
Fifty one percent of Jessamine's registered voters would total 15,485 people heading to the polls come Tuesday.
Presently, Jessamine County has 30,362 registered voters; 15,280 Democrat and 12,873 Republican and 2,209 listed under other.
Typically, the fall general elections draw more voters than spring's primary elections. The reason behind this varies, McDaniel said.
"Usually they've narrowed the candidates down, and it's also the time of year when people will get out and vote," she said. "They've (people) got more going on in May (that keeps them away from the polls.)"
In last year's general election, turnout was 40 percent. In last May's primary election, Jessamine County had a 22 percent turnout.
