  •  Huge turnout in my California county (1+ / 0-)

    There are 1100 precincts in my county in California, with 810,836 registered voters.
    We had 74.3% turnout (602,479 votes).

    Voted by mail: 41.12% (333,449)
    Voted at the polls:  33.18% (269,030)

    Lots of people, including me, turn in our "vote by mail" ballot at the poll on the day of the election.  Those had to be counted after the polls closed.  That makes me feel a little guilty but I want to hear every last bit of news and campaigning before I vote.  Like many of us, I signed up long ago to be "permanent vote by mail."  It means I can go over everything on the ballot thoroughly.  With so many ballot initiatives, state and local, that's important.

    Incidentally, Obama rec'd 78.69%
    Romney rec'd 18.12%
    Assorted third party and write-ins totalled 3.19%.
