California Finally Counts its Primary Votes

After a full month of counting provisional and late ballots, California finally finished their June 7 primary vote count. Hillary Clinton won by nearly 8 percent (7.7%), or more than 360,000 votes.

Sanders’s supporters held out that the late count would reverse the result and let them eke out a victory.

The result was well below election night’s early counts, but above the final polls, which claimed the race was within a few points (see blog: Late Polls Miss California’s Primary Results).
