California Election Results 

Voting in California finished on November 8 after tens of millions of dollars had been spent, thousands of door-to-door canvasses, and hundreds of attack commercials; we'll soon learn the results of the electorate.

Which of the seven measures on the ballot passes? Will a Republican win, or even come close to winning, a statewide post for the first time since 2006?

Will Democrats maintain a supermajority and maintain their grip on the legislature? Will it matter for overall control of the U.S. House if either party managed to flip any congressional seats?

Some solutions will become obvious more quickly than others. In landslides, the predicted winners were declared shortly after the early voting results and polls closed at 8 p.m. However, close races might not be settled for several days or even weeks.

All registered voters in California are now sent mail ballots, and any ballots postmarked by today will still be counted through November 15, which might delay the announcement of the results.

Nearly 5.5 million of the 22.2 million ballots that were mailed have been returned as of Monday.

Rob Bonta, a Democrat, was on track to win his first election and keep his position as attorney general of California, which he has held since April 2021.

In a contest that centred on California's crime rate, which has increased recently but is still significantly lower than rates in the early 1990s, he ran against Republican Nathan Hochman, a former federal prosecutor.
