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?
