In a move that may well have pleased T.S. Eliot, San Francisco's electoral season appears to be ending not with a bang but a whimper.
Turnout at the polls thus far has been sluggish, according to the city's Department of Elections — and the vote-by-mail numbers are not very impressive. By all means this could change with a surge of afternoon and evening voters and a bevy of last-minute vote-by-mail dropoffs. But, at this rate, a 50 percent turnout would be optimistic.
