Polls open in California’s primary election amid poor early turnout
Polls opened Tuesday across California in a June primary election that will help determine Los Angeles’ next mayor, signaling a pivotal moment in the city’s history. It’s also a test for San Francisco’s progressive prosecutor.
Voters also will cast their ballots for governor and U.S. senator, though Democrats Gov. Gavin Newsom and Sen. Alex Padilla don’t face stiff competition and are expected to win.
