Voter turnout in Eagle, Pitkin and Garfield counties ranged from 33% to 39%. That’s based on the number of people voting versus those who received a ballot.  In Eagle and Garfield, about 10,000 people voted in each county, and more than 5,000 turned out in Pitkin. Residents in Basalt, Carbondale and Glenwood voted to pay more in property taxes to support schools and a sizable fire district.
