California Election Results: 21st Congressional District

California Election Results: 21st Congressional District

Don’t expect to see David Valadao invoking the president as he wages a tough, personal campaign to win back the Central Valley House seat he narrowly lost in 2018 to T.J. Cox, the Democratic candidate. Instead, Mr. Valadao has been portraying himself as a moderate Republican who can bridge partisan divides, while Mr. Cox has countered with a campaign tying his challenger to President Trump.

Nearly all of the estimated vote total has been reported.

Timing of results: All active registered voters were sent mail ballots, and late-arriving mail ballots and provisional ballots will be counted in the days and weeks after the election.

Results by county

Note: Absentee vote data may not be available in some places.
