According to Sonoma County Registrar of Voters 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.
As low as Sonoma County's turnout was--37 percent--it was actually higher than most other counties throughout the Bay Area. Marin and Contra Costa counties yielded the second and third highest voter turnout percentages with 35.44 percent and 30.78 percent and Alameda County had just 21 percent casting a vote.
