The Daily Californian will continually update this page as Alameda County’s results for the 2018 California primary election come in. Polls closed June 5 at 8 p.m. 

Beyond county positions such as district attorney and assessor, voters in Berkeley are also casting their votes for a replacement for Gov. Jerry Brown as well as a U.S. senator. Under California’s top-two primary system, the two top candidates for a position — regardless of party affiliation — will continue to the November general election.
