Lakers-Celtics keeps voters away from polls?

Turnout was predicted to be low today. One reason that may contribute to that, according to the Sacramento Bee: The NBA Finals.

With game 3 of the NBA Finals taking place tonight and Los Angeles's own Lakers taking on the Boston Celtics, a number of voters may have skipped the polls on the way home from work to make sure they could catch the game starting at 6 p.m. Pacific.

Those nonvoters certainly had a good night; the Lakers defeated the Celtics 91 to 84 in Boston.
