The results of this are telling. Those four counties in the Central Valley only range from 70 – 80% of eligible voters registered. 126,000 potential votes could get the Central Valley on par with the rest of California’s average voter registration.
For example, in 2020, CA-21 voter turnout was a record at 170,000 voters. That is almost half of the average participation for California congressional districts.
And in the 2018 and 2020 elections, the Democratic candidate in CA-22 lost by approximately 25,000 votes. This is nearly identical to the margin of Republican versus Democrat voter registration in the district.
