Early voting results from Tuesday’s Primary Election in California became available when the polls closed at 8 p.m. For this year’s elections, the Alameda Post has partnered with the Associated Press to share their live-updated results for Federal and California races and measures. We will source data from the Alameda County Registrar of Voters (ROV) site for Alameda County and City contests. The Federal and State data will update automatically as the AP receives new information. We will post local race and measure updates as they become available from the ROV. More information about the races, candidates, and measures on the Primary ballot for March 5, 2024 can be found on our Alameda Election 2024 page.
