A sign advises voters of the voting center at Challenger Elementary School in Nogales.

Local voter participation on Tuesday was higher than it’s been for a primary election in the past decade, as voters turned to early ballots in larger numbers amid the widespread presence of COVID-19 in the community.

Even so, less than a third of eligible Santa Cruz County voters cast primary ballots, despite several hotly contested and high-profile local elections on the Democratic ticket.
