Voter fatigue in Peninsula produces weak turnout 

A first-of-its-kind primary produced a light turnout Tuesday, election officials said. The lack of a presidential or gubernatorial race, along with possible voter fatigue — Tuesday was the fourth election in San Mateo County in the last six months — contributed to a turnout of only 35 percent of the county’s 360,018 registered voters, Elections Manager David Tom said. By comparison, there was a 59 percent turnout for the Feb. 5 presidential primary.
