KCBX News is updating the results in this post as they come in.

The latest unofficial vote tally was released on Monday, March 9 just before 5 p.m. There are still 4,784 ballots to be processed by the San Luis Obispo County Elections division. Clerk-recorder Tommy Gong said it's "to be determined" when the next counting will take place. 

Today is Election Day, when California voters will decide the primary races—not only to select their presidential and congressional favorites, but local and state representatives as well. There are four candidates running for the 17th District seat, representing the Central Coast, in the state Senate. Senator Bill Monning, who has held that seat for several years, is termed out. 

KCBX News and the San Luis Obispo Tribune hosted a candidate forum on February 10 in Paso Robles, between District 1 incumbent John Peschong and challenger Stephanie Shakofsky. About 60 people attended the forum at Cuesta College’s North Campus and listened to the candidates answer questions and comment on three main topics: homelessness, water and cannabis.
