6:48 am
calendars? today is the first day of vote by mail in california. >> now that election season has taken off, our political analyst can tell us how this will affect candidates campaigning right here. >> that's right. but before we begin, i have news. everyone should know over the weekend, hillary clinton juan the guam democratic primary. that's right. she picked up 4 pledged delegates and bernie sanders got 3. tomorrow, west virginia holds its primary and bernie sanders is projected to win but sanders is not in west virginia. oh, no. he is in sacramento holding two rallies today. and he is here because today is california's election day and tomorrow, and every day after that until june 7 because as of today, people have signed up to vote by mail and can start sending in their ballots. that's not all. if you live in the bay area, you may be able to vote at your local election office. some election offices are
6:49 am
operating as permanent polling places. as you can see, if you live in alameda county, san francisco or san mateo or even santa clara county, you can go to a local elections department during regular business hours and cast a vote starting today. >> so, the question is how many people usually vote in the traditional way, melissa, versus the other way? >> so in california as in a lot of states, we've expanded the number of people who can vote by mail so a surprisingly small number of people vote the traditional way in the booth on election day. with all the other options in the last presidential primary in 2012, 35% of votes were cast in the booth on election day. think about that. 65% of people voted in one of these non-traditional way, mailing it in or going to a permanent early polling place. >> that's a lot of people. what does this mean for the candidates? >> you have to to be here right
6:50 am
now, today. and hillary clinton was here over the weekend and bernie sanders holding events today, and the campaigns like to ramp up 2 weeks before election day when people start usually paying attention but in california you can't wait that think low. - - l o n g. you have to ramp up and spend more money with ads at 4 weeks, not 2 and get your ad out there. and we like this. 65% of us are voting this way but we can't react as well to things that happen. if you cast your vote to a candidate and then they say something horrifying, there is nothing you can do. you can't say, hey, give me my ballot back. i would like to change that. but if you know who you are voting for now and want to get it over with and get the robocalls, get your name off the list, you can do it starting today. >> bottom line get out and
6:51 am
