MONTPELIER (AP) - Voter turnout for this week's primary in Vermont is expected to be low.

This is not a presidential election year and it's an off year for U.S. Senate campaign.

So far, a three-way primary for the Republican nomination for the U.S. House and a three-way primary for the Republican nomination for governor have been relatively quiet.

Secretary of State Jim Condos tells Vermont Public Radio turnout is driven mostly by competitive statewide races.

There are two write-in campaigns for statewide office that have generated some interest.

Libertarian gubernatorial candidate Dan Feliciano wants voters to write in his name on the Republican ballot and Progressive Lt. Gov. candidate Dean Corren is seeking a write in on the Democratic ballot.
