Today was a big day as millions of people went to the polls to make sure their voices were heard in the Presidential Primary Election.
State officials are reporting that nearly 18 million people were registered to vote in California for today’s election. Within the past two months, about 650,000 new voters registered.
This morning, all polling locations opened at 7 a.m. They will close at 8 p.m.
Torrance City Clerk Rebecca Poirier says that in 2014, there were more than 83,000 registered voters in the City, but only 23,394 people came out to cast their ballots. Of those voters, nearly 12,000 actually went to a polling place.
Torrance has 61 polling locations this year. The City is divided into several precincts for voting, each with one polling location.
