Who voted?

December 2006
Business Journal Serving Fresno & the Central San Joaquin Valley;12/15/2006, Issue 323648, p26
The article discusses the November general elections participated by less than a half of registered voters in California. As compared to the June primary election, it was described as a dull turnout and majority of the registered voters chose to stay home rather than participate in a free, open electoral process. On a registration basis, there were more registered Democrats than Republicans. This thrown pattern of registered voter reaction might lead a major block to political consultants.
