Nearly 27% of registered Los Angeles County voters had cast a ballot by noon on Tuesday, a significant drop from the same time in 2008, county officials said.
Four years ago, almost 38% of registered voters had voted by noon.

Southern California is a Liberal lock. If the voting is down, the Democrats will be the most affected.
I’d sure love to hear what the voting in the Conservative areas of the state is like.
I voted over lunch (1pm local) at my precinct (NorCal, sf peninsula) and was the ONLY voter in the room... 4 poll workers and my ballot was numbered 129. Never a lively precinct, but this was a ghost town. Mail-in supposed to be all-time high this year, so that comes into play somewhat.
I voted at 11:am in L.A. county and my polling place was deserted. I was number 132
Good. LA County is heavily Dem. I live in Ventura Co. which is just north of LA County and trends GOP.
Here in conservative Inyo County in California, biggest turnout I have ever seen. Many voters waiting in line which you rarely see here. Its going to be a Romney win in this county anyway.
Clocks were set back an hour Saturday so the libtards are probably confused.
November 7th, 12:35 am, AP: Romney takes CALIFORNIA.......................
I’m in LA county and I voted at 10:30 AM this morning. Precinct was surprisingly full compared to other years.
At least one outlet was pegging the California spread to be 15.9%.
Voting in L. A. County is down 11%. That means the Democrats are staying home in droves. If the Conservative areas of the state are going all out, this may turn out to be a rather competitive situation.
I have a hard time seeing Romney pull it out here, but with no effort at all, I think he’s going to be a lot closer than anyone would have thought.
And if even California is going that route, there’s going to be some very big surprises elsewhere.
Here’s something I dwell on all the time.
Most people look at 15.9% and think, oh we can never make that up. Well, you don’t have to. If you make up 7.95% + 1, you’ve just won.
If the Liberal areas are down by 11%, mostly Democrat, and the Conservative areas are up considerably mostly Republican, that might be a 15 to 20% flip.
7.99% + 1 Wow.
“Id sure love to hear what the voting in the Conservative areas of the state is like.”
Just voted ( a couple of hours ago) in Danville, in Contra Costa County. Three hundred in the precinct had voted absentee, and one hundred had already voted which is high. The area is Republican but the RATs are here. Most people who work, commute to somewhere else, so it is likely that they will be more votes cast after six P.M.California isn’t going to help Romney, but the low turnout in LA will spell doom for Jerry the Fairy’s Prop 30. The slimeballs in LA County who have voted, probably don’t work or are illegal, so they are probably voters who would vote to raise someone else’s taxes. Romney will win, Brown will loose. For a Conservative in CA it can’t get much better than that. If Prop 30 does loose, the RAT can will not be capable of being kicked down the road a foot farther.
Got to tell you, if that happened I’d dearly love to see the egg on the faces of the folks who habitually say California should be jettisoned.
No, our elected officials just need to incorporate it into their game plans for a change.
Look what 20 years of not doing that has done. Lesson NOT learned.
Good thoughts. I don’t disagree with your take on things.
..bet Obama doesn’t win Riverside County this time...
I voted around lunch time.
Polling place was a little more active than normal, but significantly down from four years ago.
LOL! But why the CA vote is important is Prop 30, Jerry Brown's "tax the rich & poor" referendum, and Prop 32, which takes some of the bite out of public unions in a state spending like money grows on trees. On Prop 32, a lot of slick deceptive ads geared at CA dummmies have turned the tide in favor of the No on 32 union thugs, but if turnout in red areas of CA is like people are saying, who knows?
If that happens, I’ll be very happy (and Barry will probably have been extremely lucky to win anything but Illinois and DC). If Emken beats Zombie Feinstein, we carve out a nice chunk of the House delegation and we do well on the propositions, I’ll be ecstatic.
