After he voted, Newsom met with reporters and said he is feeling good about the election, but not overconfident. "At the end of the day, election day is what matters most. And we'll be monitoring north and south to see if there is any anomalies. At least as I walked here, I haven't checked my cellphone yet, things are looking favorable. But again it doesn't matter until the polls close at 8 p.m. and every vote is counted," Newsom said.
