Ballot voting in Benicia – slow start

Status of mailed ballots in Benicia as of Friday Oct. 19

 Political Data Inc.  shows the up-to-date status of mailed ballots in the City of Benicia.  Here’s a snapshot of the CA 2018 General Election Tracker for Benicia on October 19, 2018.

A total of 13,034 ballots were mailed, 49 percent Democrat, 22 percent Republican, and 29 percent independent.

As of October 19th only 671 ballots had been received at the register of voters office.  This seems like a low number.  Does it show low interest in the election?  More likely, I think, people are waiting for more information, or just waiting until closer to election day.  But it shows that the daily number of ballots received is increasing.  Click here or on the image below to enlarge…
