UC Irvine political science professor Louis DeSipio said it appears the electorate was “pro incumbency in some cases — [Todd] Spitzer a little more than [Katie] Porter.” But turnout — at 18% so far — was low, and disappointing, DeSipio said. “The county has really invested a lot in making voting easy and it just didn’t pay off” in this election cycle, he said, adding that “there will be a somewhat different electorate in the fall.”
