The Golden State’s voting system that allows voters to postmark their ballots on Election Day is again making California the last state in the union to call their races, and the process is likely to drag on for a much longer period of time. State and county authorities estimate that they have an astounding 3.4 million more mail ballots remaining to count. Adding to the approximately 8 million votes already tabulated would take the statewide voter turnout number to the 11.5 million range. In contrast, only 7.3 million voted in the 2014 midterm election. Almost 14.2 million participated in the 2016 presidential campaign.
