FINAL CALIFORNIA ELECTION RETURNS

California Senate

November 07, 1996

Key to Election Tables

* An asterisk (*) denotes an incumbent candidate; a dagger (**) denotes an appointed incumbent.

* A double dagger (***) indicates a race in a district shared by two or more counties. For that reason, individual tables do not reflect the total vote.

* Elected candidates and approved measures--or those leading with 99% of precincts reporting--are in bold type. Results are not official and could be affected by absentee ballots.

Party affiliation is indicated in parentheses:

(A) American Independent

(D) Democrat

(G) Green

(I) Independent

(L) Libertarian

(M) Reform

(N) Natural Law

(P) Peace and Freedom

(R) Republican

* Vote percentages may not add to 100% due to rounding. 0% means returns were unavailable or only absentee ballots had been counted.

* District locations are identified by county. In Los Angeles, Orange, San Diego and Ventura counties, they are identified by community.

* Write-in candidates and uncontested local races are not included in the tables.
