The Changing Face of California Elections

The Changing Face of California Elections
The best guess on turnout for tomorrow's eleciton is that about 9.5 million Californians will casts votes. That's about 55 percent of registered voters, a low turnout but not an unusual one for a midterm election. One thing that is very different from past elections, though: fewer than half of those casting ballots will do it the old-fashioned way—by going to the polls. Instead, they're mailing their ballots in. As Kim Alexander, president and founder of the California Voter Foundation tells host Cy Musiker, that increasingly popular practice raises new concerns and challenges for both voters and voting officials.
