Republicans are one seat away from winning the 218 seats needed to claim a majority in the House, according to CNN projections, while Democrats would need to win the remaining 11 races to retain control. Six of the 11 undecided races are in California, where counting mail-in ballots typically takes weeks.

The GOP voted on Tuesday to nominate California Rep. Kevin McCarthy, the House Minority Leader since 2019, as speaker. McCarthy won a secret ballot on a vote of 188 to 31, fending off a long-running challenge from Arizona Rep. Andy Biggs, former chairman of the conservative House Freedom Caucus.

Alaska

Alaska launched a new ranked voting system for general elections this year. The results reported so far only reflect voters’ first-place choices. If no candidate obtains a majority of the first choices, the winner is determined by the ranked choice process. This tabulation is scheduled for November 23.

  • At-Large District of Alaska –Democratic Rep. Mary Peltola was the surprise winner of a special election in August to succeed the late GOP Rep. Don Young. She is in a rematch with former Governor Sarah Palin, the 2008 GOP running mate, and Republican businessman Nick Begich in her bid for a full term.

California

There are 6 unnamed House breeds in California, the most populous state in the country. The count is expected to take weeks with the official solicit not due for a month after election day. Mail-in ballots must be postmarked by Election Day and received by Tuesday, November 15. (CNN hasn’t yet predicted who will win California’s 34th District, but counts it in the Democrats’ total because both candidates are Democrats.)

  • 3rd district of California —Republican Kevin Kiley, a state Assemblyman who ran unsuccessfully in last year’s recall election, is running against Democratic Navy veteran Kermit Jones for this huge district that stretches along the state border with Nevada. Donald Trump would have won the seat by 2 points in 2020.
  • 9th district of California – CNN is projecting that Democratic Rep. Josh Harder will beat Republican San Joaquin County Board of Supervisors member Tom Patti in the race for that Stockton-anchored Northern California seat. Biden would have carried the district by 13 points in 2020.
  • 13th district of California — Republican business owner John Duarte and Democratic State Assemblyman Adam Gray are in a close race for that open Central Valley seat that Biden would have lifted by 11 points in 2020.
  • California’s 21st District – CNN projects Democratic Rep. Jim Costa will defeat Republican Navy veteran Mike Maher. Biden would have raised that Central Valley seat by 20 points in 2020.
  • 22nd district of California — Republican Representative David Valadao and Democratic State Assemblyman Rudy Salas are vying for this predominantly Latino Central Valley district that would have backed Biden by 13 points in 2020.
  • 27th district of California –Republican Rep. Mike Garcia and Democrat Christy Smith are vying for the third straight time for a seat in North Los Angeles County. Garcia beat Smith in both a special election and the 2020 general election, winning the latter race by 333 votes. Biden would have carried the redesigned district by 12 points in 2020.
  • California’s 41st District – CNN projects longtime Republican Rep. Ken Calvert will defeat Democrat Will Rollins, a former federal prosecutor, in that Riverside County district that Trump would have won by one point in 2020.
  • 45th district of California – CNN projects Republican Rep. Michelle Steel will defeat Democrat Jay Chen, a Navy reservist, for this Orange County seat, which was designed to maximize the power of Asian American voters. Biden would have raised the seat by 6 points in 2020.
  • California’s 47th District – Democratic Rep. Katie Porter and Republican Scott Baugh, former California State Assembly Minority Leader, are vying for the Orange County coastal district that Biden would have won by 11 points in 2020.
  • 49th district of California – Democratic Representative Mike Levin and Republican Brian Maryott, the former mayor of San Juan Capistrano, are in a rematch from two years ago. Biden would have lifted this coastal district north of San Diego by 11 points in 2020.

Colorado

The Centennial State got an eighth seat in the redistribution after the 2020 census. Two races remain uncalled.

  • Colorado’s 3rd District – Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert finds herself in a surprisingly close race for her Western Slope district that turned redder in redistricting. (Trump would have won by 8 points in 2020.) His Democratic opponent is Adam Frisch, a former Aspen city councilman, and an automatic recount is possible.
  • Colorado’s 8th District – Democratic State Rep. Yadira Caraveo and Republican State Senator Barbara Kirkmeyer were vying for that new seat north of Denver. Biden would have won by less than 5 points in 2020. CNN did not project in that race, although Kirkmeyer did concede to Caraveo.

Maine

Maine is another state that uses ranked ballots to decide its winners in federal elections. The results reported so far reflect voters’ first-place choices. Under preferential voting, if no candidate obtains more than 50% of the votes, the candidate with the fewest votes is eliminated and his votes are allocated to the second-place choices of his voters. The process continues until a candidate obtains 50%. The tabulation of ranked choices is scheduled for Tuesday, November 15.

  • Maine’s 2nd District – Democratic Rep. Jared Golden and former Republican Rep. Bruce Poliquin could have their races decided by the state’s ranked voting system for the second time. Neither the candidate nor the independent Tiffany Bond had won 50% of the vote on Sunday afternoon for a district that covers a large part of the state north of Portland. Trump would have carried it by 6 points in 2020. In 2018, Golden unseated Poliquin after votes were reallocated under the ranked choice system.

  • 2nd District of New Mexico – CNN projects Democrat Gabe Vasquez will defeat Republican Rep. Yvette Herrell, who was running for a second term representing a district that now includes parts of southern and western New Mexico and became more Democratic in the redistricting .

Oregon conducts its elections entirely by mail. Ballots must be postmarked by Election Day and can be received up to seven days later. The state got a new seat in the House in the redistricting. One of six home runs in Oregon remains uncalled.

  • Oregon’s 6th District – Democratic state Rep. Andrea Salinas and Republican businessman Mike Erickson are vying for this new district, which includes Salem. Biden would have carried it by 13 points in 2020.
