How to find down ballot election results

Although the Presidential Election will receive most of the attention Election Day, a number of important issues will be voted on and positions will be filled as votes are counted across the state.

These smaller races are called Down Ballot races because they appear lower on the ballot, but their importance can't be overstated.

Many important races will come to a conclusion on Tuesday, and here's how you can find results of the elections that affect you:


City council races, school board races and county positions will be voted on in San Luis Obispo County on Election Day. Many cities will also hold elections for Community Service Districts.
