The numbers represent 5-8 percent of votes for that specific office in the last election, Dreher said.
Dreher previously has said depending on the year and which offices are up for election, the election commission can save $6,000 to $7,000 by not having a primary election for one ward, or $20,000 to $25,000 by not having a primary for a citywide elected position.
The cost savings also depends on the polling places, election judges and printing of ballots, she said.
