2.7 Million Ballots Uncounted, Few Races Still Contested

With so many uncounted ballots statewide, three candidate races and one proposition are still too close to call. Prop 8 is unlikely to be reversed, but Prop 11, the redistricting measure, is only winning by 127,156 votes. Also, one local state Senate District, the 19th, has Democrat Hannah-Beth Jackson leading Republican Tony Strickland 50.2% to 49.8% as of yesterday.
