FROM THIS EPISODE

Voter registration has broken records in California. If today goes as predicted, turnout will too. Remember, if you're standing in line when the polls close at 8pm, you'll still be allowed to cast your ballot.

Main Topic Standing in Line to Cast a Ballot

Record numbers of voters are turning out in California, just as they are in the rest of the country. In Los Angeles County, several polling places were able to open up even after power outages caused by early-morning rain. Barack Obama's expected to win big here. He's expected to turn out record numbers of African American voters and, in his so-called "western strategy," is counting on the votes of Latinos. But there's uncertainty about Proposition 8, about other ballot measures, and even about the Legislature and Congress. We talk with the top state and local election officials about what's happened so far, and them and others about what to expect from an electorate that's bigger, younger and more diverse than ever before.

Guests:
Debra Bowen, California Secretary of State
