California turnout today at all-time low, vote by mail at high

Credit: field.com

Field Poll out today says turnout in California’s first open primary today will be “the lowest ever recorded in the modern era” with just 35% of eligible voters participating. A record high 55% of votes cast will be done by mail rather than at a precinct voting booth. California allows votes to be cast by mail without restriction and the percentage doing so has grown steadily since the 1970’s. This election marks a milestone: for the first time those voting by mail will outnumber traditional voters.
