With the election split into two summer primaries this year, the second round of early voting in the Bronx showed a steep drop in turnout, according to numbers released by the city Board of Elections Sunday night. 

Early voting for Tuesday’s primary, which ran from Aug. 13-21, showed final tallies of just 4,556 ballots cast across the Bronx, the lowest turnout of any of the five boroughs. By comparison, more than 10,000 borough residents turned out early in advance of the June 28 primary – a drop-off of 55%.
