Details: Of course, races in Palm Springs aren’t the only thing on the ballot. There are multiple county, state, and federal decisions that need to be made, including ballot initiatives on gambling, reproductive rights, flavored tobacco, and more.

Bottom line: While the official certification in Riverside County doesn’t happen until later this month, we should have a fairly accurate picture of how the local races will shape up by late this evening. We’ll be tracking it all live on our Twitter account and will tell you what we know when we know it.
