Primary night is almost here, and the reporters and editors at CALmatters will be stationed across California to provide you with live updates and coverage throughout the night.
On our 2018 election blog, our team will be sharing updates on candidate reactions and what Tuesday’s results mean for the general election.
For the first time, CALmatters will provide live election results for key statewide, legislative and congressional races. Bookmark this page and come back for the election results page on Tuesday.
Additionally, CALmatters is curating a list of influential Golden State politicos on both sides of the ideological spectrum so that readers can watch for their commentary, analysis and reactions.
