UPDATE (4:40 p.m.) — As of 4 p.m., 2,773 ballots have been cast, representing an approximate 22% voter turnout.

Democratic Registrar of Voters Carole Young-Kleinfeld said the turnout is "kind of normal"

"It's always hard to predict the affect of contested races," she said, "but this is what we expected."

Abesentee ballots have started being processed. Young-Kleinfeld said there are about 150 of them so far, with some more possibly coming from the post office.
