Wow. That was pretty bad.

Three districts in Los Angeles County held special elections Tuesday to fill state Assembly seats. Of the roughly 791,300 people eligible to vote in those elections, 64,643 voters showed up to the polls.

That works out to a turnout rate of 8.23 percent, according to Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk Dean Logan.

Here are six places more people go to in Los Angeles County any given day than to the polls:

1) The Los Angeles Coliseum

The Los Angeles Coliseum can hold 93,607 people. Everyone who voted would fit in stadium with nearly 29,000 seats left to spare.

2) L.A. County public transportation
