Record turnout expected as voters surge to polls around Bay Area

Voters rushed to the polls in anticipated record numbers around the Bay Area for Tuesday’s midterm elections — many galvanized by frustrations over growing national political tensions and fierce debate over the region’s housing crisis and homelessness.
In polling places ranging from large gymnasiums to cramped home garages, voters were eager to cast their ballots.
Candia Shepherd, who has served as a poll inspector at San Francisco’s Ingleside Branch Library on Ocean Avenue for years, said she’s never seen so many voters show up.
“This has had a steady turnout of people,” she said. “Normally, 7 to 8 a.m. would be the rush. But this morning was busy until 9, slowed for half an hour, and picked up again. There’s so much at stake.
