A large number of outstanding ballots remain to be counted, but whoever wins these seats will oversee one of Orange County’s northernmost cities, a gateway between Orange and Los Angeles counties sitting between multiple freeways.

These results reflect all early votes cast up to Monday night. They do not include ballots cast in person on Election Day or mail-in ballots that arrived after Monday evening.

Election Day ballots are scheduled to be reported out in updates from county election officials Tuesday, starting at 9 p.m. In California, mail-in ballots can arrive in the days after the election and still count as long as they’re postmarked by Election Day.

Buena Park is a smaller Orange County town with a tourism-oriented slate of attractions like Knott’s Berry Farm and the Source Mall. The city also neighbors Anaheim, with its (pre COVID-19) bustling Disneyland resort area.
