PLACER COUNTY (CBS13) — Early returns had Placer County turning blue in the presidential election, but updated results show that’s not the case.

The county now reports that more than 49% of voters chose President Trump to Joe Biden’s 48%. It’s a difference of about 1,500 votes.

But this could change again, Placer County is still working to count 42,000 more ballots. Additionally, ballots postmarked November 3 can be received by the elections office until November 20.

The county will report results updates on Tuesday and Friday afternoons until the election is certified.
