Are you anxious to find out who wins the 9th Congressional District race between Jerry McNerney and Ricky Gill? Or the 5th Senate District race between Bill Berryhill and Cathleen Galgiani?
It looks like you’ll have to be patient. Both races are expected to be so close that it may take up to 28 days after Election Day to determine the winner, says Austin Erdman, San Joaquin County’s registrar of voters.
