Dismal Turnout in Massachusetts Special Election

The Boston Globe notes that very few voters actually took part in the special election yesterday that sends Katherine Clark (D) to Congress.

"Turnout was a dismal 13 percent, which appeared to set a record for voter apathy in the state's recent US House races. The previous low-water mark was the October 2001 special election that Stephen F. Lynch won with a 17 percent turnout."
