2024 Primary Election Certified by Alameda County ROV

On Monday April 1, shortly after noon, the Alameda County Registrar of Voters (ACROV) released the Certified Final Results, listing the final outcomes of all the March 5, 2024, contests. The County issued their tallies before the due date for certification, which is April 5, 2024. California’s Secretary of State has until April 12, 2024, to certify all state results.

Overall voter turnout for Alameda County was 330,304 ballots cast or 35.17% of 939,260 eligible voters. In the City of Alameda, based on the total votes for Measure E, 22,692 voters cast ballots, or 44.36% of 51,156 registered voters.

Final decisions

The candidates and measures that were determined by California’s 2024 Primary Election include statewide Proposition 1, which concerns mental health care, addiction treatment, and housing. It passed by an extremely slim 0.4% margin.



Locally, 10 people were elected to the Democratic Central Committee for District 18. In order of most votes received, they are Loren Manuel Taylor, Pamela Price, Austin Tam, Mayra Alvarado, Warren Logan, Rowena Brown, Andrea Luna Bocanegra, Laura Leigh Geist, Hannah Groce, and Pamela Ferran. For Trustee Area 2 of the County Board of Education, Angela Normand defeated John Lewis. Terry Wiley ran unopposed for Superior Court Judge, Office No. 5, and Mark Fickes will be the next Superior Court Judge for Office No. 12.

The two County Ballot Measures, Measure A (changing the civil service exam notification period) and Measure B (charter amendment for recall language) both passed with more than the 50% vote needed. Alameda Unified School District’s Measure E (combining and extending local school taxes) needed two-thirds of the vote to pass, and ultimately received over three-quarters of votes counted.

Moving on to November’s contests

The 2024 Primary Election also determined which candidates will face each other in the November General Election. President Joe Biden (D) and Donald Trump (R) were selected to be their party’s candidate in the November Presidential Election. In the race to finish Dianne Feinstein’s term and succeed her in the U.S. Senate, Adam Schiff (D) will face Steve Garvey (R).

Alameda’s Vice Mayor Tony Daysog (D) was unsuccessful in his bid to succeed Barbara Lee (D) for the 12th District of the House of Representatives. Instead, Lateefah Simon (D) and Dr. Jennifer Tran (D) will compete for the seat in November. The race to succeed Nancy Skinner as State Senator for District 7 will be a match between Jesse Arreguín (D) and Jovanka Beckles (D). And Assemblymember Mia Bonta (D) will be facing a challenge from independent candidate André Sandford in District 18.

County results for this election are available on the Alameda County ROV website, and statewide results are available from the California Secretary of State. Stay with the Alameda Post for our ongoing election coverage throughout the 2024 summer and fall campaigns.
