11:30 Numbers Righeimer Leapfrogs Humphrey

Well, who knows what to expect now?  With all 70 precincts reported, it looks like it's going to come down to the provisional ballots and others to decide the Costa Mesa Council race.  Katrina Foley is handily ahead, but Mayor Jim Righeimer and former councilman Jay Humphrey are playing an interesting game of leapfrog.  Righeimer leads Humphrey by 21 votes? Lee Ramos is well off the pace.

It looks like Measure O, Righeimer's latest attempt to change city government by imposing a Charter on it, has gone down in flames once again!

Measure P, the useless measure that has cost the taxpayers thousands to place on the ballot and more thousands to try to repair the damage caused by the misleading language, appears to have produced an inconclusive result.  Nobody is going to wave a 53.6% - 46.4% in front of the governor and tell him "The People" have spoken!  What a gaffe!

It looks like the incumbents - Mike Scheafer, Bob Ooten and Arlene Schafer -  will hold their seats on the Costa Mesa Sanitary District Board, as will Jim Atkinson on the Mesa Water District Board.  Shawn Dewane has soundly trounced Wendy Leece in the race for his seat on the Orange County Water District Board.

I forgot... writer Honeyman pointed out I messed up my 10:30 entry... sorry about that... haste makes waste...  One more update coming after midnight, then I'm heading to bed.

I'm going to bed....sure it's gonna be a great sleep.

Wouldn't there be a recount since it's so close? How many provisional ballots can there be.

I'm sick to my stomach.

Jay will be declared the winner over Righeimer once the provisionals, etc. are counted.

People that turned in their absentee ballots at polling places on election day have not yet been counted. I know there are two votes for Jay in there.
