Getting Close, But Not Over Yet (UPDATED)*
The Registrar of Voters site now has the most recent results of the local races. You can see that page HERE. No idea yet how many ballots remain to be counted. Chunky chick still warming up... The next update will be Thursday at 5:00 p.m. *Spoke with a representative in the Registrar of Voters office at 9:30 Thursday morning. They are NO LONGER going to update the "ballots remaining to be counted" numbers by District. That means we just have to be patient for the final count and not twist our brains into knots trying to predict the results. So, just relax and wait...
POSITIONS REMAIN THE SAME
Sandra Genis still holds a commanding lead in the race for a seat on the Costa Mesa city council dais. Steve Mensinger trails her by more than 1,700 votes. Gary Monahan solidified his hold on the all-important third seat by increasing his lead on John Stevens to 131 votes. Colin McCarthy trails Stephens by more than 350 votes.
