Voter Turnout To Hit Record High

While Election Day is November 3rd, it may be more accurate to think of that day as “election end.” As demonstrated this year, early voting and mail-in voting continues to grow in popularity (and of course, is the result of COVID in many cases). Two weeks after ballots were mailed out, 1.5 million had been returned, demonstrating a record return rate in the state that is being mirrored throughout the country. As of Monday, 355,000 ballots had been returned in the County of San Diego. While the higher-than-normal voting rate is expected to hold through Election Day, it remains to be seen exactly how that will impact election results.
