5:08 pm
francisco closed at eight o'clock tonight. we expect our first peek at what those results might be from some of those earlier ballots, which were mailed in to give us our first indication on how voters are leaning when it comes to prop age and previous polling, suggested that the pro recall side was leading. but more recent polling touted by the district attorney showed a tightening race, with voters evenly split on the recall, and we're live in san francisco will continue to monitor this. christian captain ktvu fox two news. alright, christian. thank you for that staying in the city covid-19, now affecting the precinct citywide. since yesterday we've had about 100, coworkers cancel, uh, their assignments due to covid related issues. and so this morning we were scrambling a bit too quick . we had stand by poll workers ready to go out about that number. so we were scrambling to get people reassigned to those precincts and transport them from city all out to the to the to the polling places. san francisco elections director john arntz said the sick poll workers today accounted for
5:09 pm
roughly 5% of the total amount of poll workers on the job this election day. so how will congressional races around the state ultimately decide the majority in the house of representatives? our political reporter greg lee joins us now to explain greg. good time to remind people. california has a top two primary system, meaning the top two vote getters, regardless of party advance to the general election in november. and while the congressional races in the bay area very well could end up democrat on democrat, other races in central and southern california, could help determine the balance of power in dc let's look at what the number is currently are in the house of representatives. democrats hold a slim majority to 22 2. oh, eight. there are seven vacancies and the magic number is 2 18 for control. a handful of toss ups in california could certainly be the difference. historically the party in the white house often loses seats in the midterm. if democrats were to lose their majority california republican kevin mccarthy could become the
5:10 pm
next speaker of the house. republicans took back four seats in 2020 from the so called blue wave in 2018. democrats currently hold 43 of 53 house seats in a mostly blue state. both major parties in the state know the impact these congressional races could have. as these results come in, you're going to see some fantastic candidates that can bring the fight to democrats. pick up these seats, um, that are currently held by democrats. have changed significantly redistricting and also an opportunity for pickup in some of these open seats as well. it's not solely about the issues that we find it for day in and day out. it really is about the future of our democracy. in the fight for 2024 is on in 2022. in many ways, i think the future of the house and holding the house and the hands of the democratic speaker runs through california. now analysts say. not only are
5:11 pm
the results of these top two primary race is important. the messaging that sticks with voters out of this primary today may very well dictate how the national party's set their agendas heading into november. on july 4th over the summer into labor day. voters are cementing their impression about democrats about joe biden about how democrats are doing on gas, the economy and on crime and homelessness and what's going on , say in terms of governing los angeles or governing san francisco. all of that means that these table top kitchen table pocketbook issues what's happening in terms of how you feel about the future. about your job, your household financial situation. your assessment there, it's going to be key. professor david mcewan. they're talking about the l. a mayor's race, which is getting a lot of attention because tens of millions of dollars have been spent there. that race looking like a competition between billionaire and former republican rick caruso. who's campaigning on a tough on crime message and progressive
5:12 pm
congresswoman karen bass. a lot of eyes on that race to julie will be watching. and so, greg what are some of the key congressional races to watch tonight? i think for my money, one of the key races to watch is in the central valley or the 22nd district, watching this one for a lot of reasons, experts consider this a toss up districts. the incumbent republican david validator, was one of the 10. house republicans to vote to impeach former president trump and that got the ire of his party. but trump has stayed out of this race. he's facing another republican and one democrat tonight. the question is what will former president trump's impact be, and also could a democrat win this race? because in 2020, this district went to president biden by 13 points. we will wait and see. all right. we'll be watching greg. thank you. and a reminder that the polls close at eight o'clock tonight. be sure to stay with ktvu for extensive primary coverage will have live election results throughout the evening, both on air and online just had two ktvu .com slash election still to come a series
