Malibu Polls See Steady Turnout

UPDATE: Voter turnout hits 66.66 percent countywide when polls close at 8 p.m.

Updated at 8:30 p.m.

Malibu saw a steady turnout Tuesday for the presidential election.

"It got a little quiet around noon, but it's been moving along," said Election Inspector Lorena Aviles at Malibu City Hall, adding that more people began arriving after getting off work.

A line snaked out of the Zuma Room at City Hall just before 5 p.m., with one woman exiting with a proclamation of "Yay! Finally!"

Poll workers at other locations around Malibu reported a steady flow in the evening.

Aviles said the only issue was that several dozen people showed up at the wrong polling location and had to vote using a provisional ballot.

"We haven't turned anybody down," she said.

Countywide, voter turnout was 66.66 percent of registered Los Angeles County
voters had cast ballots in today's election as of 6 p.m., according to the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/Clerk's sampling of pre-selected precincts.
