Next-To-Last Count Tonight
It's very likely that the count tonight as provided by the Registrar Of Voters is the next-to-last count of this election. County-wide there remain only 100 ballots to be tallied. Today Sandra Genis gained another 42 votes, which leaves her at 15,978, and 1,779 votes ahead of Steve Mensinger. The more they count the further she moves ahead of him. Mensinger had 14,199 votes and is 257 ahead of Gary Monahan. In the all-important race for the third spot Monahan is now 153 votes ahead of John Stephens. Colin McCarthy is 239 votes behind Stephens and Harold Weitzberg lags behind McCarthy by 1,752 votes. Al Melone and James Rader trail the field.
THANKSGIVING IS THE GOAL
Neal Kelly, the Orange County Registrar of Voters, told us his goal was to be finished with the counting by Thanksgiving. It certainly looks like he'll meet that goal with only 100 ballots remaining.
