A poll worker hands out "I Voted Today" stickers during the first day of early voting October 22, 2012 in Washington, DC.
It may have seemed like this campaign season would never end, but we can now safely report that it will -- on Tuesday night. And unlike past elections where voters chose between one Democrat and one Republican, eight congressional races in California are choices between two candidates of the same party. That's because of California's new top two primary system.
California Report host Scott Shafer looks at these races with reporters Tara Siler from KQED in San Francisco, Steven Cuevas who reports from the Inland Empire for KPCC and The California Report's election editor, Tyche Hendricks.
