In the Republican Party township primary elections, only 2.43% of the 140,101 registered voters bothered to cast ballots.
Algonquin was worst at 1.2%.
Next was Grafton township with 2.18%.
Best was Nunda Township, where 5.65% of the eligible voters cast ballots.
As the defenders of township government love to point out, their tax take is only about 2% of the total real estate tax bill.
