Contra Costa County Registrar of Voters Steve Weir said Tuesday that voting was going relatively smoothly throughout the county. There were minor glitches, as there always are for something as massive as a presidential election, but overall he said things were going well.
The turnout in Contra Costa is expected to be lower for this presidential election than it was in 2008, when 87 percent of registered voters went to the polls. This time out, Weir said it may get as high as 80 percent.
