In Tuesday's Payson primary election, 3,359 residents cast ballots, with a few provisional and early ballots still to be counted.

Dixie Mundy from the Gila County Elections Department said the 26-percent turnout of registered voters was low.

She said this percentage will increase once the early ballots are counted and added to the totals.

In the election between incumbent Dorothy Little, Barry Standifird and Dan Hill, Little won all 15 precincts. Hill finished second in 14 precincts and tied with Standifird in one.

According to the Secretary of State's office, the vote turnout for registered voters for the state of Arizona was 19 percent.

Mundy said when the final figures are released on either Friday night or Saturday morning, the turnout could be about average for a justice of the peace election.
