Sacramento County Voter Turn Out
It looks like Sacramento County is going to have a larger voter turnout in tomorrow’s election than is predicted statewide.

Brad Buyce, with the Sacramento County Registrar of Voters’ office, predicts a bigger turnout in the county than the secretary of state’s prediction of 55 percent turnout statewide:
We’ve estimated that it’s going to be between 60 to 65 percent turnout of the registered voters in Sacramento County will show up on election day.
That estimate is also much bigger than the 34 percent turnout for last June’s primary election. Buyce says the governor’s race is what’s bringing out more voters.
The biggest voter turnout ever in Sacramento County was about 83 percent in 1958, when Governor Pat Brown ran against William Knowland. Brown won that race with 60 percent of the vote.
