Louis DeSipio

KNX News' Chris Sedens goes in depth into why voter turnout here in California might reach a record low for a primary. Louis DeSipio is a UC Irvine political science professor. “Well, I don’t think it’s unique to this primary election. California has made the decision over the last several presidential elections to have its primary earlier and earlier – we’ve joined the Super Tuesday primary states – so the general election is six months in the future. We also have a pretty non-competitive race at the top of the ticket for both parties, so that discourages participation even further,” says DeSipio.
