Like most of you, I’ve been unable to bring up the California Secretary of State’s election results web page most of the evening

But it is back up as of a few minutes ago.

I’m told the site is experiencing 10 times the normal levels of traffic. A spokeswoman says they are disabling the map function, which should speed it up.

This is what happens when you have an election and everyone shows up.

    Why are the CC results so slow?

    Volume.

    We’re now being told it will be 3 a.m. or later before today’s count is finished. We should see another update in about a half-hour.
