Turnout for election could be worst ever in state
By John Wildermuth
After a June primary in which a record low 25 percent of registered voters cast ballots, political analysts are predicting that Tuesday’s turnout could be the worst ever for a general election.
Brown’s low-key, low-visibility re-election bid deserves much of the blame. He won the primary with 54 percent of the vote over Republican Neel Kashkari, a little-known former Treasury official, and with all the polls pointing toward an easy victory Tuesday, the governor has spent little time and less money on getting his campaign message out.
By contrast, when Brown went all out to beat big-spending Republican Meg Whitman in the 2010 race, nearly 60 percent of voters cast ballots. In 2012, with President Obama seeking re-election, the turnout was 72 percent.
