ROHNERT PARK (CBS SF) – Low turnout was reported across the state for Tuesday’s primary election, but nowhere was the foot traffic lower than at a polling place on the Sonoma State University Campus in Rohnert Park.
Not one voter among the 8,000 or so registered students or nearby residents actually turned up to cast a ballot, reports the Sonoma County Registrar of Voters Office.
“We’ve had low turnout there before but I believe this is the first time we’ve had nobody show up,” said Assistant Registrar Gloria Colter.
Coulter said she believes there were several mail-in ballots for the precinct, but the campus itself is very quiet following Graduation back on May 10th.
“Students register there though the course of the year and by the time it gets to June most of the students have gone,” Colter said.
She said County-wide turnout, though low, was above state average at 30.1%.
