Well just a positive note here from So. Cal.

I decided to drive past the local Elections Office of the Registrar of Voters down the hill
this morning around 9 am. It was packed! Parking lot was full.
There was a man standing in the parking lot holding a cardboard box
with a slot in it. It said Ballot Box Drop.

I dropped off my ballot a couple of weeks ago. I usually don't check anything
out during elections. So I don't know if this is normal for a primary here or not.

I also haven't checked the polling places around here. This place is conservative.
So probably wouldn't mean anything around here. (mountain area)

1. The 2014 California election had just over 60% mailed in ballots. This year with many new voters...

I'm thinking many of those voters will go to their precinct to vote.

My drive around town (on errands ) saw the same senior citizen brigade as always, but it was early in the
day.

It's always an exciting time....and much more so since my area has a Democratic Congressperson, now.

2. I went down the hill to run errands also.

I usually go down about once a week. I thought I would drive
a little out of my way to see what was going on. I was really
pleasantly surprised. There are stories on Reddit also about
voters demanding a Democratic ballot. Other voters recording
the interaction. The poll worker giving in and giving the guy a
Democratic ballot.
