We’re still in recovery mode from primary night, so today’s update is going to be a little short. Keep in mind that all election results are unofficial at this time. Until Monday, overseas ballots will continue to be accepted and voters who cast provisional ballots are able to work with county officials to cure whatever issue caused them to vote provisionally. Next week, counties will canvass the results, which makes them official. At that point, recounts can proceed. Runoff candidates have until March 21 to withdraw. Final runoff pairs will not be official until then.

That said, here are the runoffs for statewide, legislative, Board of Education and federal offices based on the unofficial results:
