Selfies and cheeseburgers: How Gavin Newsom spent election day

Primary ballots mailed; unaffiliated voters to participate for first time

Nearly 100,000 cast early votes in New Mexico

It's Election Day. Polls opened at 7 a.m., and with a low turnout so far, Sonoma County election officials hope voters mailing in ballots will make a final-day surge.

U.S. President Donald Trump is not on any ballot Tuesday, nor will he be in November.

In California, which Democrats see as key to taking a majority, the party has targeted 10 of the 14 House seats held by Republicans. Here's what you need to know.

Six names appear on the Democratic ballot for Iowa Governor, but only five are actual candidates.

Democrats also want Montana's House seat, held by Greg Gianforte, a Republican known for assaulting a reporter past year.

Voters who leave off signatures or whose signatures don't match will be contacted by mail and will have eight days to provide a ballot signature, Alexander said.

Newsom has proposed a universal healthcare program for California as one of his top priorities and says he supports SB 562, a bill that aims to create a single-payer system. The state has a "direct primary", commonly known as a "jungle primary", which means the top two candidates will advance to the general election in November regardless of party. Eight states are holding primary elections, including Iowa, where Democrats are focusing on two of the state's three Republican-held House districts in the November 6 general election. Given Van Drew's more moderate profile (he's pro-gun), Inside Elections predicts this is one of the GOP seats that will likely flip. Kevin de León, who views Feinstein as being too "centrist". Barring some kind of unexpected event, it's clear who Democrats will nominate in these four seats. Up from 48 in the previous election cycle, there are 103 Republican women who are running for House seats in this election cycle.

There are also various local races going on throughout the state. She publicly withdrew her support of candidate Trump in October 2016 following the Access Hollywood tape release to the frustration of some of the President's supporters and won reelection with only 49 percent of the vote that year. She entered the position after Gov. Terry Branstad was appointed to Ambassador to China. A crowded field is running to replace term-limited Gov. "Republicans will probably vote for him and Democrats won't vote for him anyway", she said.

HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES: Two congressional races in this state could be competitive.

Senator Roger Wicker expected a tough primary challenge from Chris McDaniel, a conservative firebrand who nearly unseated Senator Thad Cochran in 2014. Thad Cochran made a decision to retire. The Democratic primary saw a major last-minute plot-twist, when State Sen. Chris McDaniel are focusing on targeting Cochran's old seat instead. Jon Tester, who is among the most vulnerable Democratic senators in the nation. Ed Royce and Darrell Issa, and the district where Republican Dana Rohrabacher is facing challenges from the left and the right.

In Montana, Republicans will pick a candidate to take on Democratic Sen. The district is rated a tossup for the general election. The race is rated "lean Republican".

"Some West Sacramento people think they live in Sacramento County", she said.
