Central, South Coast Voters Make Clear Choice In Presidential Race

BIDEN-TRUMP.JPEG

It may be too early to call the presidential race still, but voters in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties made a clear decision.  The region’s voters overwhelmingly favored Joe Biden.

In Ventura County, Biden has received 61% of the votes tallied so far, to Donald Trump’s 37%.  In Santa Barbara County, Biden received 67% of the presidential vote, to Trump's 31%.

You’ll note that the percentages don’t add up to 100% in each of the counties.  Some other candidate received votes as well.  With a number of mail-in and provisional ballots yet to be counted, it’s expected the final percentages could change slightly.
