California Could Face Record Low Turnout

Dan Walters: "The outcome of the top-of-the-ticket contest between Gov. Jerry Brown and Republican challenger Neel Kashkari is virtually certain months in advance, there's no U.S. Senate contest, and there will be no barnburner ballot measures to motivate occasional voters."

"The most heavily contested races will be at the legislative or congressional levels, but only a handful - scarcely a dozen - of the 153 districts involved are truly competitive. Given this year's lackluster dynamics, the steady erosion of voter turnout that California has been experiencing, and the pattern of past non-presidential, non-senatorial elections in the state, we could see a record-low general election turnout."
