High Profile & Close Races

The contests listed below have been identified as generating a great deal of interest. To help you track these races, we have provided campaign contribution information based on reports posted to the Secretary of State's CAL-ACCESS database through mid-afternoon on November 6th, as well as links to the pages displaying the latest vote information on the Vote2000 web site. Since congressional candidates file disclosure reports with the Federal Election Commission and not the Secretary of State, we have not provided campaign disclosure data for them. High profile races are those that the news media, pollsters and campaign consultants have indicated are of higher than normal interest and in which significant campaign contribution activity has been seen. You may wish to program your Java players to scroll these races for you throughout the night. Close races are defined as those where the top vote-getters are within 2% of one another. The contests and candidate listings may change frequently throughout the night as votes are counted
