Here  … The returns as of . . . 4:26 a.m.PDT

If you’ll note, the turnout appears to have been lower than even I suspected.

With 93% of the precincts reporting there has been 7,172,701 ballots cast.

That’s 42.29% of the 17 million Californians registered to vote.

That is 987,299 fewer voters that I suspected would go to the polls.

  1. Ha, I love the title of your post, Duckey! I’m surprised at the low turnout too. Then again, being three hours behind some of the big races that took place out here on the East Coast, do you think that might’ve had something to do with it? I gotta tell you, turnout in my little village of Pelham was tremendous. Seemed we had even more voters than in 2008.

    1. To tell ya’ the truth . . .

      I think the turnout here had absolutely nothing to do with the rest of the country.

      All I know right this second is that this state completely and unequivocally went total blue in the major state races.

      The only race that is yet too close to call is the Office of Attorney General where Kamala D. Harris (Dem) is leading Steve Cooley (Rep) by a slim margin of 22,299 votes with 99.2% of the precincts partially or fully reporting.

      If she holds on… It’s a slam-dunk clear Democratic sweep.

      And of course… Barbara Boxer took out Carly Fiorina.
