Galvin predicts turnout of up to 400,000 at Mass. polls

Massachusetts Secretary of State William Galvin predicts that between 350,000 and 400,000 voters will cast ballots in Tuesday’s Republican presidential primary.

Galvin said turnout is likely to be higher than in 1996, the last time there was an uncontested Democratic primary. That year, Republican Bob Dole had only weak competition from Pat Buchanan and just 290,000 ballots were cast in the Republican primary.
