California voters

The LA Times opinion section today references a study from last year by the Public Policy Institute of California on independent (Decline to State) voters. Another study, on likely voters, found that 58 percent of unregistered Californians are Latino, 69 percent make less than $40,000 per year, 53 percent are 18-34 years-old, 66 percent rent, and 66 percent are immigrants. Thirty-two percent of the unregistered Californians live in Los Angeles (versus about 27 percent of registered voters). This begs the (unanswered) question, how many of these people are eligible to register?

The PPIC site is worth bookmarking. Right now they have two studies on education in California on their front page.
