OSAKA — In an election marked by extreme voter apathy, Fusae Ohta was re-elected Sunday to a second term as Osaka governor by a huge majority.

Voter turnout was 40.49 percent, the lowest ever recorded, disappointing many, including Ohta. In the 2000 gubernatorial election, 44.58 percent went to the polls.
