More than 50% of the estimated vote is in California's recall election and the question over whether California Gov. Gavin Newsom should be removed from office is on the ballot.
So far, the “no” vote – rejecting Newsom's removal has an early lead.
Newsom's team was projecting confidence as the finish line came into view Tuesday night, with one top adviser telling CNN they "could be headed for record turnout" in a statewide special election. That would be a clear advantage for the Democratic governor in this overwhelmingly blue state.
CNN has not yet made a projection in the race.
