With more than two hours left before the polls close, many stood in lines throughout the day to cast their ballot in one of the most talked about elections in history.
Here in Torrance, City Clerk Rebecca Poirier told us today that the longest wait times at several polling stations in Torrance averaged up to 45 minutes to an hour, which is a bit longer than normal even for a national election.
Voters in Torrance voted on 17 statewide propositions, also choosing the best candidates in Assembly, Senate and Congressional races.
Early voters in Torrance also had to brave the lines this past weekend. Pictures and videos from enthusiastic voters at El Camino College were posted throughout social media as people waited to get the last opportunity to cast an early ballot. The campus was chosen as an early voting site by the Los Angeles County Registrar’s Office for the first time. The Registrar’s office said there were more than 17,700 voters casting early ballots during the last weekend. Early voting began 29 days ago.
