"We're prepared for a big turnout," said Alameda County Registrar of Voters Tim Dupuis. "We're seeing a turnout that's at a pace equal to the last general presidential. I think there are a number of issues that are on the ballot that are interesting to people."

Dupuis says the turnout for Tuesday's midterm is expected to approach the 75-percent levels Alameda County delivered for the presidential election in 2016.

Some in line at the registrar's office in downtown Oakland are taking advantage of conditional voting, which allows someone to register and vote even if they missed the deadline.
Outside the registrar's office on Fallon Street, cars lined up at a mobile drop off location with hardly a break in the action.
And in Berkeley, the drop off box in front of City Hall was stuffed full for a short time on the weekend, but fully operational after election workers cleared it out this morning.

It seems all over Alameda County, voters are all-in on this election.
"Oh I think it's really important," said Berkeley voter Carolyn Novosel. "We have to change the tenor in the politics of our country right now."
