The Swarm

Mix it up with The Bee's editorial board.

Curve balls and slam dunks on election day

In the sporting world, we Stephen Strasburg making his first start as a major league pitcher, amid overwhelming hype.

Then we have pivotal Game 3 of the NBA finals, featuring the Boston Celtics and L.A. Lakers.

My guess is that turnout will be particularly low in Southern California after 6 p.m. But from what I can tell, it ain't too hot in Sacramento at the moment.

I voted at my midtown precinct at 10:30 a.m., and was only the 47th voter to do so.

Excuse the sports metaphor, but in terms of voter engagement, the June 7 primary is looking like an air ball.
