California Primary Results 2016: GOP & Democratic Updates

(Washington, D.C., will hold its Democratic primary next week.) Voters in California, Montana, New Jersey, New Mexico and South Dakota head to the polls today, and North Dakota holds a Democratic caucus. As Breitbart's Michelle Moons reported, "California now has the highest voter registration in its history at almost 18 million, with over 646,000 registrations in just 45 days...".

Extra workers in the election office have been processing the early ballots and getting the results stored electronically with a release time of 8 p.m. on election day. "And although Republicans lag behind, they are not behind enough to seal the deal for the two leading Democrats: Ben Winston, a researcher for the LA Times poll, said "[Sanchez's] support is still somewhat weak and is likely dependent on turnout". "Although the Associated Press declared 100 percent of districts reporting as of Wednesday, the reality is that ballots from vote-by-mail voters in California haven't even all been delivered by the mail carrier to their destinations yet", Inquistr explains.

"I look forward to the full counting of the votes in California which I suspect will show a much closer vote than the current vote tally", Sanders said following a White House meeting with President Barack Obama.

You also can call the Riverside County Registrar of Voters at 951-486-7200 or the San Bernardino County elections office at 800-881-VOTE.

The California Primary is finally here!

Here's one divide, as determined in polling this spring by the Public Policy Institute of California: While likely voters are divided on whether government at all levels should do more to reduce gaps between rich and poor (51% believe government should do more, 44% disagree), fully 70% of non-voters say the government should do more. Republican nominee Donald Trump picked up 84 percent for his party.

The change is expected to result in longer lines at the polls, Bennett said, a move that could prompt more voters to cast absentee ballots.

When you vote in a political party's primary election, you are helping select a party's nominee.

The top two vote-getters will face off in the November general election. Since we were forbidden by law from discussing candidates or political issues inside the polling station, we assured the irate Republican voter that we had no idea who was a fellow Republican and that the ballots were all handled by us in the same fashion. Only one local race - the clerk's contest between Republican candidates Linda Obrec, a community activist, and Thomas Lutkenhoff, a retired fire captain - is contested in the August primary.

Election officials are expecting strong voter turnout.

Two former Republican party chairmen and a physicist-turned-software developer are among several GOP contenders for the Senate seat, but none has polled above single digits or raised significant campaign funds in the overwhelmingly Democratic state. Another good resource is KPCC's Voter's Edge Voter Guide, which let's you research your ballot my entering your zip code. The last batch was mailed Saturday.
