Special election: Low turn out expected

Only about a quarter of San Diego County residents are expected to turn out Tuesday to cast a ballot in the statewide special election.

“Our office hasn’t gotten a lot of interest from the public leading up to the election, so we are expecting a relatively low turnout, somewhere in the neighborhood of 25 to 30 percent,” San Diego County Registrar of Voters Deborah Seiler said.

Voters will decide six measures–Propositions 1A through 1F–proposed by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger and the Legislature in an effort to help shore up the state’s massive budget deficit.

Residents in Coronado will also vote to fill a City Council vacancy.

The polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Residents can also cast their ballot at the Registrar of Voters office in Kearny Mesa at 5201 Ruffin Road.
