According to Sonoma County Registrar of Voter Janice Atkinson, the turnout yesterday was the lowest in years.
She was quoted in the Santa Rosa Press Democrat, calling the turnout dismal.
"They're just dribbling in,” Atkinson said, standing by her earlier forecast that 50-53 percent of the county's registered voters would turn in their ballots.
The most walk-in voters at any precinct was 148, she said. Some precincts have more than 2,000 registered voters.
The low voter turnout may have affected some closely watched races locally, and the releatively large number of vote-by-mail ballots.
In the city of Sonoma, for instance, just over 2,700 people voted – less than half the number of registered voters.
