Primary Election Results: What Candidates and Propositions Won

See who will move forward to try to represent San Marino in Congress, Senate and State Assembly in November, and whether the cigarette tax and term limits ballot measures passed. Share your thoughts in the comments.

San Marino Patch Tuesday and into Wednesday morning as precincts reported who voters chose to move forward in the November election for San Marino's representatives in Senate, State Assembly and Congress. 

The term limits ballot measure has been approved, while the cigarette tax was an incredibly close race, staying just above or below 50 percent approval all Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning (see results below).

The top two vote-getters in the June 5 primary election will advance to the Nov. 6 general election regardless of party preference or whether one candidate receives a majority of votes in the primary. The election will mark the first major test of the state's "top two" primary system approved by California voters in 2010.

Prop 28: Limits on Legislators' Terms in Office -- 61.4 percent YES, with 100 percent of precincts fully or partially reporting.
