Since January 1st, most of the new voters registering are young, diverse, and lean Democratic. Vince Vasquez, author of the study, says most of these new voters fit the profile of Bernie Sanders supporters.

Those enthusiastic new, young voters could make a difference in down-ticket races such as City Attorney in San Diego, where 57,000 new voters joined the rolls so far this year. Countywide, as many as 778,000 ballots could be cast in San Diego for the June 7th election.
