"The last time we saw an increase in registration before a presidential primary you have to go back to Ronald Reagan in 1980,” Vince Vasquez, senior policy analyst at National University System Institute for Policy Research, told KPBS Midday Edition on Monday.

"By the time we reach the final voter registration deadline this month, we could have somewhere in the neighborhood of 200,000 new voters in San Diego County, half of which live in the city of San Diego," Vasquez said.
