Live updates for key propositions and races

In these consequential midterms, the national spotlight is not on solidly blue California. But there are dozens of high-stakes propositions that could sway the future of the state.

One of the biggest (and most antagonistic) battles is over rent control. In what could be a boon to renters, Proposition 10 would repeal a state law that puts limits on how cities such as Los Angeles and San Francisco enact rent regulation. [Update: Proposition 10 has failed.]

There are key races, too. With Jerry Brown termed out, Gavin Newsom is poised to become California’s next governor, while Dianne Feinstein is trying to hold on to her seat in the U.S. Senate. The fight for the superintendent of schools, meanwhile, has become one of the most expensive state races in the country.

Results for all of these critical contests will start streaming in once polls close at 8 p.m. This post will be updated throughout the night. [Update: Local races have been decided, with 100 percent of Los Angeles County precincts reporting.]
