There were some high hopes for voter turnout in California's presidential primary election on Tuesday.
That's because of the massive late surge of registered voters this primary election season.
The California Secretary of State's office reported that the state's voter rolls grew by almost 650,000 in the last six weeks before the deadline. That brought California's total voter registration count to nearly 18 million.
A statewide Field Poll released this Monday estimated that 45 percent of those registered voters would show up to the polls across California.
Preliminary data shows that turnout in L.A. County did improve, but still fell short of that 45 percent prediction.
