EARLY indications are voter turnout is looking strong in Chester, despite the bad weather and the Chester Races taking place. Of the 19 boxes opened so far (about one-third), 16 have more than 60% turnout, 10 have more than 70% and three had more than 80% of respondents. Speculation is the overall turnout will be 72-73%, which would be significantly up on 2005''s 64.3%.
