Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

Preliminary election results may be in, but some races won't be called until officials can count provisional ballots and mail-in votes that were dropped off at polling places Tuesday.

The secretary of state's office reported that "hundreds of thousands" of votes remain to be counted, but won't have a better idea until counties report this week

A Bee survey showed nearly 800,000 uncounted votes in just nine of the state's 58 counties:

Los Angeles County..........................162,008
San Diego County.............................135,000
Orange County.................................113,119
Riverside County................................49,200
San Bernardino County......................29,800
Santa Clara County................86,600-96,600
Alameda County.................................61,100
Sacramento........................................84,000
San Francisco County........................31,000

These votes could determine a handful of tight legislative, congressional and local races and the fate of Proposition 29 to raise the cigarette tax $1 a pack.

With almost 800,000 votes left to be counted in these nine counties alone, it could be a while before final results are known. County election officials must report their final results to the Secretary of State by State by July 6. The Secretary of State then has until July 13 to certify the results.
