Early voting turnout through Saturday was still lower than it was during 2015 early voting. But for a second consecutive day, Saturday's turnout was greater than the same day four years ago. By age, voters older than 65 are outperforming their percentage of the city's voting base. Council districts 5 and 6 had the highest turnout percentage thus far.
