California election results continue to trickle in, as San Francisco and the rest of the Bay Area digest Joe Biden’s victory over President Trump in the presidential race. Beyond the presidential contest, many California propositions and local races still are being closely watched. And many remain too close to call, as vote counting continues across the state and Bay Area.
Among the outcomes: Progressive candidate Connie Chan won the San Francisco District One supervisor race, beating out Marjan Philhour by 123 votes in the city’s closest supervisor race this year. Carroll Fife, the mastermind behind Moms 4 Housing, has unseated two-term City Council incumbent Lynette Gibson McElhaney in a stunning victory.
Here’s a short list of final results on the key races that San Francisco and Bay Area voters are deciding. We’ll be updating this list around the clock as our politics team makes calls.
Note: The Chronicle calls races based on several factors, including the current margin, the estimated number of ballots left to be counted and, in some cases, where those ballots come from. California is accepting mailed ballots through Nov. 20, so for some close contests, final results could take some time to be called following election day.
