New election report released! Here is the new tally in the county’s three major closely contested races:
|CLERK-RECORDER/REGISTRAR OF VOTERS|
|EUREKA CITY COUNCIL, THIRD WARD|
|EUREKA CITY COUNCIL, FIFTH WARD|
Full post-election night report here.
There are still upwards of 20,000 votes left to count, more or less, but in these three races, with 10,446 more votes tallied after the election night final report, we see the usual trend holding: the left-leaning Juan Pablo Cervantes’ lead has significantly increased since election night, while the right-leaning John Fullerton’s lead has decreased slightly.
Are there enough votes left in the hopper for G. Mario Fernandez to pull ahead? That’s an open question. But supporters of Cervantes have every reason to feel good about that race.
