The Chamber of Commerce’s candidate forum Oct. 21 drew an unexpectedly high turnout at the Hampton Inn Col Alto.  However, local registrars think voter turnout Nov. 3 will remain consistent with past off-year elections. Nearly 14,000 people were registered to vote in Rockbridge County as of Oct. 13th, which is about the same as the total number in 2013. Two years ago, when there were also primarily local races, voter turnout in Lexington was 39 percent and it was 20 percent in Buena Vista.
