Not So Fast, California, Many Votes Still Uncounted

If you followed our election night live blog, you saw reports from other news outlets predicting wins and losses for the state propositions. Hold your horses, folks. Mark DiCamillo, director of the non-partisan Field Poll, reminds us that there are still many outstanding (eg: mail-in ballots) that haven’t yet been counted.

“There could be as many as 2 million votes outstanding by the time all the votes are counted tonight,” said DiCamillo.

That means we’ll have to wait until Wednesday morning at the earliest for final results — potentially even later in the week.

With one exception: Proposition 38.

Molly Munger, the backer of the measure which would have raised taxes for K-12 education, gave a concession speech Tuesday night.

In the meantime, you can keep an eye on the Secretary of State’s site or the state proposition map included in our election coverage; and local county registrar pages for races important to you.
