Righeimer Increases His Lead Over Humphrey to 48

NOVEMBER 13TH RESULTS
Once again we report the latest counts on the 2014 Costa Mesa City Council election.  Today at 5:00 p.m. the Orange County Registrar of Voters officer released the following numbers in that race:
 

ALL THE INFORMATION
If you're interested in the entire "Results" page, you can view it HERE.  And, you can review all the information for "What's Left To Count" HERE.  I'll summarize it for you below.

THE RACE
As you can see, Katrina Foley, after picking up 59 more votes, continues to hold a commanding lead.  Jim Righeimer gained 46 and increased his lead over Jay Humphrey to 48 votes.  Humphrey gained 38 in the count today and is losing ground.  Lee Ramos gained 34 votes and stays in fourth place.  Tony Capitelli gained 6.  Al Melone gained 3.  Rita Simpson gained 14.  Chris Bunyan gained 6 and remains in last place.

WHAT'S LEFT...
According to the Registrar, there remains an estimated 13,772 votes to count.  Of those, 12,720 are provisional votes.  The remainder of the ballots to be counted numbers are very slow to update.  All 40,000 Vote-by-Mail ballots have been counted.

ON SCHEDULE FOR CERTIFICATION NEXT WEEK
As far as we can tell Registrar Neal Kelley and his team are still on track to finish the counting within the next day or so.  His expectation was to be able to certify the election early next week.  Any candidate or interested party wishing a recount must request it within 5 days of that certification.

As Tom Petty said, the waiting is the hardest part.

And, 'it has to be said,' anybody who voted for Rita really needs to take a good, long look in the mirror and ask themself, 'Why?' To put it delicately, she was not qualified for the post.
