Media Advisory: California’s Highest Voter Turnout May Be San Diego County, Election Day Voter Mobilization

What: With days before the March 5th California Primary Election, San Diego has the highest voter turnout so far of the ten largest counties (filter by county in the vote turnout tracker). As of yesterday, 14% of voters had turned out in San Diego County, the second-largest county in terms of registered voters. Turnout in other top-ten counties was significantly less: Los Angeles (7%), Orange (12%), Riverside (9%), San Bernardino (7%), Santa Clara (11%), Alameda (8%), Sacramento (11%), Contra Costa (10%), and Ventura (9%). 

Because turnout is still off-pace for California, Alliance San Diego is driving hard to reach voters and equip them with the information they need to participate in the election. Despite office damage caused by the Jan. 22nd floods, the Alliance San Diego team has called, knocked, texted, and engaged on social media to reach tens of thousands of voters in addition to providing non-partisan voter information on our election information page. Given the size of its electorate and its relatively higher turnout rates, San Diego’s voting power has the potential to shape state policies and priorities.
