Voter fatigue produces weak turnout in S.F.

After a 65 percent showing for February’s presidential primary, voter turnout was expected to dip significantly for Tuesday’s election, according to Department of Elections Director John Arntz. He said Tuesday’s election appeared to be on par with the November 2007 polls, which drew 35 percent of The City’s 430,259 registered voters. Roughly 70,000 of San Francisco’s 166,894 absentee ballots had been collected by Tuesday afternoon, according to Arntz.
