Voter statistics, trends ahead of June primary

By The Associated Press

Voter dynamics and registration ahead of California's June 3 primary election:

_ As of April, California had 17.6 million registered voters, about 73 percent of those eligible to vote.

_ Registration is 43.5 percent Democratic, 28.6 percent Republican and 21.1 percent no party preference.

_ San Francisco County has the highest percentage of voters registered Democratic (56.3 percent) and no party preference (30.7 percent).

_ Modoc County has the highest Republican Party registration (49.2 percent).

_ While Democrats dominate in registration, Republicans dominate geographically, at least according to county. Of California's 58 counties, 31 are majority Republican and 27 are majority Democratic.

_ The electorate for the June primary is expected to be overwhelmingly conservative, older and whiter than California's overall voter registration base.
