Here’s how election day is unfolding:

2:47 p.m.: Secretary of State Dr. Shirley Weber told KCRA 3 why some races won’t be called tonight.

“We have ballots that may be put into the mailbox today and postmarked today, and so we won’t get a chance to count those until later,” she said.

Although the chance to register ahead of time has passed, California allows voters to register on the day of an election — but with a provisional ballot instead.

“[Provisional ballots] will be held until they are certified to be actually eligible to vote,” Weber said.
