As of yesterday, 62,875 of the 236,054 vote-by-mail ballots which had been issued to voters in San Francisco for today’s election had been returned. And as such, with 435,757 registered voters in San Francisco, the “turnout” will be at least 14 percent. And embarrassingly, it might not be too much more.
The record low turnout for an election in San Francisco was 28.2 percent, a record which was set in 2008 and which many are expecting to fall today. The polls close at 8pm, please do your best to prove the pundits wrong.
