Tuesday is the day we've been telling you about for quite some time. The general election is finally here and hundreds of voters rushed into the Kern County Elections office Monday to get their votes counted in time for Tuesday.
Nearly 40 percent of vote by mail ballots have already been cast in Kern and thousands of more are expected to come Tuesday. County elections officials are urging people to wear a mask while visiting these polling places. For those who do not want to wear masks, a county spokeswoman says they'll be able to request a poll worker to bring a ballot out to them.
Political analysts Christian Romo with the Kern County Central Committee and Matthew Martin with the Kern County Republican Party talk about what to expect.
