L.A. mayoral primary turnout rises as Bass widens lead over Caruso

Source: Los Angeles Times

Turnout in the Los Angeles mayoral primary, which will see Rep. Karen Bass and developer Rick Caruso move to a November runoff, appears to have come in higher than years past.

With nearly all ballots counted as of Tuesday afternoon’s update, turnout had reached about 30% of registered voters in the city of Los Angeles. That’s up from 20% in the 2017 primary, when Mayor Eric Garcetti won reelection with 81% of the vote.

Countywide turnout was 28.4%, and officials said the vast majority of this latest batch of about 43,000 ballots came from people who had voted by mail.

5. Prior to the June 7th primary . . ..

LA Times alongwith other news outlets were pretty sure that Caruso would be the victor and that his lead would grow in the polling over Bass.

Then the media outlets complaining that turn out was one of the lowest in recent years.

That is why I do not trust corporate polls.

Oh yea, it's 4:30 am here in LA, and it's thundeing and lightning
