STATEWIDE PRIMARY ELECTION WAS ON JUNE 7, 2022.
Monterey County must report its final official results to the Secretary of State by July 8, 2022.
The Secretary of State will certify all of the results from throughout California on July 15, 2022.
For State or Federal races, the top two vote-getters proceed to the November election.
For races within Monterey County, the top two vote-getters proceed to the November election.
If there are only two candidates (see School Board Races), a winner is declared based on the June results.
If a candidate in a countywide race achieves 50% + 1 vote in June, that person wins the seat outright.
These candidates are endorsed by the California Democratic Party for offices in our region. Here are projected results based on the current figures provided thus far. A win = highest vote-getter in a race.
ASSEMBLY DISTRICT 30 – DAWN ADDIS – Win! – Will be on November Ballot
ASSEMBLY DISTRICT 29 – ROBERT RIVAS – Win! – Will be on November Ballot
CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT 19 – JIMMY PANETTA – Win! – Will be on November Ballot
CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT 18 – ZOE LOFGREN – Win! – Will be on November Ballot

These are the only local candidates endorsed by the Democratic Party:
Win! Nieto is at 48.9% as of the 6/14 Semi-final report. A candidate reaching 50% + 1, prevails outright in June. If no one gets that amount, the Sheriff’s race goes to a November election with the top two on the ballot.
MONTEREY COUNTY SUPERVISOR DISTRICT 2 (DUAL ENDORSEMENT – VOTE FOR EITHER)
(Church will be on the November ballot certainly. As of 6/10, Gage is in the clear lead for the 2nd spot. She is 21 votes ahead of the 3rd place candidate with all but a handful of ballots yet to process.)
MONTEREY COUNTY BOARD OF EDUCATION – TRUSTEE AREA 1 – ANNETTE YEE STECK Win!
CHUALAR UNION SCHOOL DISTRICT 3 TRUSTEE – OFELIA C. FLORES Did not prevail
NO ON MEASURE B – CITY OF DEL REY OAKS Win! (that is: the “No” votes are prevailing)
