Andrew Do Wins Supervisor D1 Race

Andrew Do finally can declare himself the winner of the Supervisor D1 race against Michelle Martinez.   An unprecedented 151,623 ballots were cast and Do won by 657 votes.   There are now less than 50 votes left to be tallied for D1 and it is unlike that Martinez can catch up.

The tidal wave of Hispanic voter turn-out  in this presidential election has caused a number of notable races in Orange County to be Blue instead of  Red.   The biggest upset of the day is Ling- Ling Chang (R) lost to Josh Newman (D) and the California State Senate now has the super majority.

After Recount, Sylvia Wins by 77 Votes

The recount for San Jose City Council D8 race is completed after two days and Sylvia Arenas won by 77 votes over Jimmy Nguyen.  It was an upset win for Arenas for Nguyen outspent her 2 to 1 and received the endorsements of most of the leaders in San Jose politics including Vice Mayor Rose Herrera, Former Mayor Chuck Reed, Mayor Sam Liccardo, Councilmembers Manh Nguyen and Tam Nguyen.





The final tally will be published next week as ROV is finalized the audit of all recounts to make sure that all ballots match up between manual tally and machine tally.

San Jose City Council D8 Recount

Sylvia Arenas is now leading by 78 votes as Jimmy Nguyen gains on write-in ballots.  Most of the 34,271 ballots have been recounted.  The process should be done by tomorrow according to schedule, unlike the D4 recount saga earlier this year where it took 3 days to manual recount about 17,000 ballots.
