Want to know who will win the California primary? You'll probably be waiting until Wednesday morning -- and maybe longer.
"The East Coast is going to tune in the next morning and we are still going to be counting," said Stephen Weir, the president of the California Association of Clerks and Election Officials and the top election official in Contra Costa County.
One interesting dynamic, besides the maddening inability of a state to count ballots in a timely fashion, the early returns will most certainly favor Clinton:
8:00 PST. Tuesday: After the polls close, all 58 counties will start to report the results of the mail-in ballots that have been received and counted over the last month. Weir expects about 3 million votes to be reported. (Overall he's predicting 56 percent of the state's 15.7 millions voters will cast ballots.)
Only in recent days has Obama closed the gap, which should translate to Clinton receiving strong support with early voters. The media will be dying to make predictions, should be fun watching them over-analyse the early returns.
