General Election

A total of 12,712,542 Californians voted in this election.

Because only a single candidate qualified for the ballot in SD-30, AD-43, AD-47, AD-48 and AD-50 (and no write-in candidates filed to have votes counted), these five candidates effectively won their races on May 22nd. [California Elections Code, Sections 8142 & 8605] For additional information, visit our page about uncontested candidates.
