Vote

Election Day is here, and absentee voter turnout in the Inland Empire, and California as a whole, hasn’t improved whatsoever.

Depending on Election Day turnout, Raul Ruiz (D) could be ousted by State Assemblyman Brian Nestande (R) in CD-36. In CD-31, the battle between Pete Aguilar (D) and Paul Chabot (R) is a toss-up. But the numbers currently don’t favor Aguilar.

In CD-41, Congressman Mark Takano (D-Riverside) still stands the best chance for a reelection win, over Steve Adams (R-Riverside).

Independents will play a big roll in deciding Tuesday nights outcome. If Democrats are going to have any chance, the independent vote will have to play a roll here. If they break for GOP candidates, then it will be a significantly bad night for the Democrat Party.
