(WKBN)- It’s primary day, part two in Ohio.

Voting is slow in the Valley on this election day but early voting has been going on for a while.

At the Hope Center in Warren voters cast about 180 ballots by 5 p.m.

Trumbull County Board of Elections Director Stephanie Penrose said she was hoping for a better turnout, but the numbers aren’t there, yet.

“I’m always hoping to reach double digits of 10% with our absentees and early votes. We’re about 2.5 so that might be pushing it, but I like people to prove me wrong,” Penrose said. “I have not talked to one angry voter today. Every problem has just been minimal, been easy to solve and most are just getting people out of bed and getting them to the polls.”

The story was the same in Mahoning County. Mahoning County Board of Elections director Tom McCabe said they were predicting about 5% to 8%.

“What we are seeing here today across the county is very low turnout,” McCabe said. “Half the county has a contested Democrat ballot for the 59th District State Representative. We’ve seen some places steady but overall, it is still down from what we’ve seen in previous elections. Of course, this being a special election, we know that turnout was going to be pretty bad.”

The polls close at 7:30 p.m.

If you aren’t sure where to vote, you can find your polling place on the Ohio Secretary of State’s website. If you are voting absentee, those ballots must be received by your county’s Board of Elections by 7:30 p.m.
