"Early ballot returns reveal San Diego is in the midst of a high-turnout blue primary, which may impact down-ballot local races," said Vince Vasquez of the NUSIPR

"Local voter interest and participation have been buoyed by the numerous public presidential campaign events held here in recent weeks, as well as the tightening race between Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton," he said.  "As we approach Election Day, it will be critical for local campaigns to devote significant resources to Get-Out-The-Vote efforts to turn out voters and secure votes in a cycle dominated by presidential politics."
