San Diego County's Voter Turnout Lower Than Recent June Gubernatorial Primaries


Ballots are still being counted Friday across California following this week’s June primary. 

There are 15 contests where the margin is less than 2 percent, including the 49th, 51st and 53rd District congressional seats in San Diego County. 

Voter turnout for California’s June primary was 22.5 percent according to the Secretary of State’s website.

In comparison, turnout was 25.17 percent for the last gubernatorial election primary in June 2014.

In the primaries in 2010 and 2006, voter turnout was above 33 percent.

In San Diego County, 24 percent of registered voters turned out to vote Tuesday, according to the secretary of state’s website.

Of the record 1.6 million registered voters, the registrar has received 406,501 ballots.

Imperial County had the lowest voter turnout in the state with just 16 percent followed by 17 percent turnout in San Joaquin County.

The highest turnouts in the state were 72 percent in Sierra County where 1,558 ballots were turned in by the county’s 2,155 registered voters and Alpine County with 51 percent.

Elections must be certified 30 days from Election Day.
