BOISE -- Primary elections are being held all over the state Tuesday.

Voting began at 8 a.m. and thepolling placeswill stay open until 8 p.m.

Idaho's secretary of state projects voter turnout to be low.

State leaders expect only 26 percent of registered voters to turn out for the primary election.

KTVB's Political Analyst, Dr. Jim Weatherby says such a low turnout could mean some surprise wins.

Some Idahoans have already cast their ballots.

In Canyon County, almost 700 votes were cast by early voters, and that's not including absentee ballots.

In the Ada County Elections office, they saw just over 1,500 people vote early.

Once again, voting will continue until 8 p.m. tonight.
