Party officials expect good turnout, but not like 2008

South Carolina Democratic Party officials are expecting a good turnout during Saturday’s voting. But the totals are not expected to reach the numbers during the last contested Democratic presidential primary eight years ago.
Back in 208 Barrack Obama, Hillary Clinton and South Carolina native John Edwards were all on the ballot. During that primary, about 530,000 voters went to the polls.
State Democratic Party Chairman Jamie Harrison said this week he’s expecting a turnout of between 350,000 and 400,000 voters statewide on Saturday.
Polls are showing that Hillary Clinton has a sizeable lead over Bernie Sanders going into the primary.
Last week, in the six-way South Carolina GOP presidential primary, more than 740,000 voters cast ballots.
