8 Days Until the Virginia Democratic Primary; What Will Turnout Be?

Here’s a graph of past voter turnout in Virginia Democratic primaries. Obviously, 2009 turnout – with a heated gubernatorial contest and tons of money spent on advertising – was wayyyy higher than what we’ll probably see this year, but I’m thinking that 2001 or 2005 could be in the range. What do you think? Are you sensing much interest and/or awareness in next Tuesday’s Virginia Democratic primary? More or less than in previous primary years?

    In SW Virginia, I sense almost no interest in the primary. One reason is the lack of a candidate from central or SW Virginia. Probably only the activist Dems will vote out here. I don’t see any interest in GOPers crossing over, either, probably because of the fact that the GOP ticket is a done deal.
