There clearly is quite a bit of excitement leading up to the 2016 General Election as voters cast their ballots in numerous contests at the local, regional, and national levels. 

The over all voter turnout in San Bernardino County was 30.93 percent with the Democrats turning out at 37.56 percent and Republicans at 35.15 percent. The vote by mail voters had a 17.07 pecentage rate which was higher than the 13.85 percent of those voted at neighborhood precincts. In Riverside County the Registrar of Voters has posted a notice that over 100,000 vote-by-mail, provisional, and damaged ballots have yet to be processed so there are only semi-official results in those races. 

This primarily election for me was a celebration with family and friends at the campaign headquarters of Assembly Member Cheryl Brown in Rialto, as the result rolled in giving her a commanding double digit 10% victory in the primary election. She garnered 44.80 % of the votes cast while her closest competitor got 34.01% of the votes. This commanding lead will bode well for her as she moves toward the general election in November.
