Election Update, 5:00 P.M. 11/10/16


NOT MUCH CHANGED TODAY
Here are the latest numbers from the Orange County Registrar of Voters as of 5 p.m., Thursday, November 11, 2016.  In every case the ratios remained the same.  No positions changed in any individual races and the Yes/No ratios remained virtually the same in all measures on the ballot.

COSTA MESA CITY COUNCIL
Sandy Genis picked up 300 votes; John Stephens gained 313; Allan Mansoor gained 249; Steve Mensinger gained 239; Jay Humphrey gained 230; Lee Ramos gained 148 and Al Melone gained 72.
COSTA MESA SANITARY DISTRICT 
Incumbents Jim Ferryman and Art Perry continue to hold solid leads on the challengers, Gary Monahan, Jim Fitzpatrick and Christopher Luntsford
MESA WATER DISTRICT 
Jim Fisler continues to hold a commanding lead over challenger Alex Reich
 GROWTH ISSUES
Measure Y, the Smart Growth Initiative, continues to hold a more than 2/3 edge.  Measure Z, the bogus city initiative, stayed static at 55/45

MEDICAL MARIJUANA ISSUES
The two citizen-generated initiatives, Measures V and W, continue to fail.  The city measure, X, looks like it will pass handily.


FAIRVIEW PARK ISSUES
The citizen-generated Measure AA continues to hold a overwhelming lead.  The city-generated bogus Measure BB continues to fail badly.

VOTING BY DISTRICTS
The measure hijacked by Jim Righeimer and placed on the ballot continues to show strength.  It will likely pass, much to the detriment of the residents of the city.
HOSTILE TAKEOVER OF CMSD BY MESA WATER DISTRICT
This measure continues to lead but the NO votes gained ground.
COAST COMMUNITY COLLEGE DISTRICT
All incumbents continue to hold commanding leads
NEWPORT MESA UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT
All incumbents continue to hold commanding leads
74TH STATE ASSEMBLY DISTRICT
Matt Harper increased his lead over Karina Onofre
37TH STATE SENATE DISTRICT
John Moorlach holds a large lead over Ari Grayson
48TH UNITED STATES REPRESENTATIVE DISTRICT 
Dana Rohrabacher continues to hold a commanding lead over Dr. Suzanne Savary.
THAT'S ALL, FOLKS... MORE TOMORROW, MAYBE
So, that's it for tonight.   The next report will be at 5:00 p.m. Friday, although it's not clear if the Registrar's Office will be working tomorrow, Veterans Day.  There remain 400,465 total votes county-wide left to count.  They just nibbled away at that number today.  In years past it has taken several days for the final number to be certified.  Last time it was on November 20th.  Most of the races above look pretty solid, but.... remember... 47 votes...
