UPDATED RESULTS – NOVEMBER 2 MIDTERM ELECTION

votingindividualUPDATED Wednesday 2:27 p.m.

Attorney General hopefuls Kamala Harris and Steve Cooley are still waiting for the final count of absentee and provisional ballots to see who will become California’s top cop. And despite a significant difference in votes between her and the declared winner, Barbara Boxer, Carly Fiorina has yet to make her concession speech.

Even though the votes have been cast, with 100 percent of precincts reporting, and the mud slinging stopped – or put on hiatus – there are still some juicy issues to resolve.

California voters sent a message Tuesday night when they cast their ballots; marijuana is still illegal, don’t ask for more fees or surcharges, leave measures we voted on before alone and big money still can’t buy an election, whether it’s to protect oil company’s interests or taking the highest office in the state.

Los Angeles County District Attorney Steve Cooley may or may not be moving to Sacramento to become the state’s Attorney General, depending on how the count of absentee and provisional ballots goes; making the race between Cooley and San Francisco District Attorney Kamala Harris the closest in the state. Cooley declared victory shortly before midnight, but the numbers shifted less than an hour later, giving Harris a narrow lead.

Other races were not as close, changing the guard at the top of the state with Jerry Brown besting Meg Whitman and Gavin Newsom beating Abel Maldonado, putting Democrats in the Capitol’s top two seats. Incumbents retained their jobs as Secretary of State, Controller and Treasurer, and voters sent both former Santa Clarita Mayor Cameron Smyth back to his Assembly seat and Congressman Buck McKeon back to Washington with healthy margins.

In local water board races, challengers weren’t successful in unseating those already serving; the widest margin of victory was Tom Campbell, who bested Frank Smathers for the Castaic Lake Water Agency board at large seat with a 10 to 1 margin; Ed Colley retained his Division 1 seat with a 3 to 1 margin; Peter Kavounas had a 2 to 1 margin over Robert Clark for the Division 2 seat and J.H. McMillan garnered twice as many votes as challenger Carole Lutness.

Getting results during Election Night was somewhat challenging, as the website of the Secretary of State was down the majority of the evening, overloaded with users. Results also came from the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorders Office.
