Special Episode: California Votes – A Look at the June 7 Primary

CAPITOL WEEKLY PODCAST: Today we present a Special Episode of the Capitol Weekly Podcast, recorded live, Thursday May 26 at CALIFORNIA VOTES, A 2022 Election Preview.

This episode features the Keynote: A Look at the June 7 Primary, featuring two of the state’s most respected political data experts, Paul Mitchell of Political Data Inc., and Matt Rexroad of Redistricting Insights discussing hot races like the contests for Attorney General and State Controller, and issues like Ballot Harvesting and the factors motivating voters this year.

Gubernatorial election years are typically lower turnout than Presidential election years – with the Primaries seeing even lower numbers of voters than the main event in November. The 2014 Primary turnout was just 25%; 2018 only 27%. With big changes over the past decade – Top Two, Redistricting, the Voter’s Choice Act, etc. – what should we expect this year?

CALIFORNIA VOTES was presented by Capitol Weekly and was made possible by the support of our underwriters: The Coalition for Safe, Responsible Gaming, The Tribal Alliance of Sovereign Indian Nations, Western States Petroleum Association, KP Public Affairs, Perry Communications, Capitol Advocacy and California Professional Firefighters
