District 1
Brian Kennedy will finish well ahead of all his opponents, possibly winning without a runoff. Analisa Silverstein will finish second. Lauren Ferris will likely finish 3rd.

District 5
Isabel Salcido will likely win without a runoff. Richard Genera will finish second.

District 6
Claudia Rodriguez and Art Fierro are likely headed to a runoff, with Rodriguez having a good lead over Fierro. Cristian Botello will have a respectable 3rd place finish.

District 8
Chris Canales will likely finish in first place, and head to a run off. Rich Wright will likely have a small lead over Bettina Olivares, as both will likely be watching Election Day results closely to see who goes to the runoff with Canales.
