County Clerks Strained By Large Voter Registration
This election year is a big one.
County clerks are working harder than ever to register new voters whose interest in the primary election has been sparked by the tumultuous presidential race.
As the Associated Press highlights, a mix of events has created a larger than normal interest in the elections this year.
Besides the glaring Trump issue facing the state, there are several other measures that are calling voters to the polls.
Secretary of State Alex Padilla has already asked for $32 million to help counties with the influx of voters. Half of that funding has been approved.
The last day to register to vote or change party preference is May 23 for the June 7 primary.
