California Primary Results 2016: GOP & Democratic Updates

Howard Terry | 20 June, 2016, 13:19

An estimated 5 million voters in California will use mail ballots when they participate in today's primary election, according to Field Poll findings released today.

Primary turnouts trend much lower than general elections, but with prominent presidential and senatorial races on the ballot, the number of registered voters in California has hit a record high.

Contra Costa County officials expect 60 percent of registered voters to cast ballots, slightly higher than projections for Santa Clara and San Diego counties.

About 3.5 million mail ballots were cast in the state's 2012 primary, and 3.8 million mail ballots were cast in California's 2008 presidential primary. With almost 100 percent of all precincts reporting, she garnered 1.9 million, a half million more than Sanders, to win the primary with 56 percent of the ballots cast in her favor.

"Vote-by-mail ballots that are mailed must be postmarked on or before Election Day and received by your county elections office no later than 3 days after Election Day".

About 4.1 million California voters this year are Latino, 1.6 million are Asian, and 800,000 are black. Former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson defeated two other candidates to win the Libertarian Party nomination on Memorial Day weekend. Whether poll workers actively asked unaffiliated voters if they wanted to take part in the Democratic primary or relied on the voter asking for a crossover ballot varied by county and polling station.

Though many recent California polls had Sanders and Clinton neck and neck, Clinton won by such a massive margin that the AP's call was likely not the deciding factor.

As the rest of the results come in, count on Northern Michigan's News Leader to bring you that information.

The races that will be on all ballots in California are those for the presidential primary, senate and Proposition 50.

The announcement angered Bernie Sanders supporters, but it also concerned nonpartisan organizations focused on increasing voter participation. Utter switched his party affiliation from Democrat to Republican following January's reorganization meeting.

Rebecca Spencer, registrar of voters for Riverside County, said turnout "looks like it's up for a primary but nothing compared to a presidential general election".

Pelosi said in a statement issued by her office that Clinton has demonstrated "her vision, her knowledge, her ability, indeed her stamina, to get the job done for the American people". Still, the primaries feature a number of hotly contested fights between moderate and liberal Democrats, with some favoring business interests and others supporting unions.
