Iowa holds primary elections

Voters all across the state of Iowa cast their ballots during today's primary elections.

John Hunolt worked in the polls in Ottumwa's Precint 5 on Tuesday.

He said the precinct was off to a slow start.

"By noon 30 to 40 people had voted," said Hunolt. "Now we're up to 70 so it's been pretty slow most of the day."

Hunolt expects the action to pick up this evening when voters get off work.

He does not believe the threat of severe weather later Tuesday night had any effects on the turn out.ã??
