How the presidential race is shaping up in California

Here’s a rundown of the state’s current vote-by-mail count. But then remember: This race is tight.

New for 2016: On election night, the final county-by-county results will be calculated and posted online by California’s Secretary of State.

And if it’s tight, there’s a little Hollywood trick to make sure you don’t miss the finale. Say the studio’s producers:

“Joe, let’s stop casting ballots yet. Let’s go see a movie.”

The early returns tell a mixed story: The election is far closer than some people expected, but so far no one has cast 100 percent of the ballots. And it’s still early.

But that doesn’t mean the suspense stops.

The final tally is expected to be reported by 10 p.m. Pacific.

Now, before you head to the theaters, here’s where California will rank among the states when it comes to the most voters that have returned their ballots:

Tied for last: Ballots have been returned in only 6 percent of California.

With you: Last: Ballots have been returned in 13 percent of California.

If your name is on the ballot, you are not surprised: Ballots have been returned in 74 percent of Californians, meaning you have about a 20 percent chance of casting a ballot.

Presidential vote-by-mail ballots for New Hampshire, Maryland, Wisconsin, Arizona, Indiana, Oregon, and Idaho are expected to be reported by 5 p.m. Pacific on election night.

It is expected that New Jersey, Florida, Ohio, Georgia, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Oregon, Arizona, New Mexico, North Carolina, Missouri, North Dakota, Colorado, and Texas will report vote-by-mail results by 8 p.m. Central on Election Day.

California’s first vote-by-mail ballots were mailed in early September, which means there is still a relatively long window for those who have not returned a ballot to start early and catch up. But remember: The trend might change in the next few weeks.
