Update: Tulare County posted its first batch of election results after a delay caused by long lines at polls.
"We had an incredible turnout today," said Hiley Wallis, a Tulare County official.
Due to high voter turnout, results will be slow in coming as votes are tallied, Wallis said in an email message.
Tulare County elections officials delayed the release of first election results because voters were still in line waiting to vote when the polls closed at 8 p.m.
"We had an incredible turnout today," said Hiley Wallis, a Tulare County official. At the elections division office in Visalia, there was a line of voters for most of the day, she said.
At least one precinct in Visalia had voters waiting in line after 8 p.m. and officials were checking to find out if other precincts were experiencing the same she said.
Voters who are in line when the polls closed at 8 p.m. but had not yet voted must be allowed to cast their votes, she said.
California Secretary of State Debra Bowen said Tuesday night that county elections officials can delay release of results if they need to.
