Get yer hot ballot counts right here
You know you’re living through a hotly contested election when County Registrars in swing states become overnight celebs hosting press conferences for paparazzi. And although seeing this election process unfold over the last week gave us the time we needed to properly appreciate the comedic gift that is the Four Seasons Total Landscaping press conference, it reminds us how painstakingly meticulous they have to be with every. single. ballot. to ensure accuracy. They literally hold our democracy in their hands. Any of you still trying to claim the old tired ‘my vote doesn’t count’ line?! Didn’t think so.
The latest SLOCO election results released Mon 11/9 show all FIVE sales tax measures are well on their way to passing. Props to SLOCO voters for helping our cities dig out of these pandemic-decimated budgets. And in a historic move, SLO City Council will be represented by a #femsquad. Yup, all 5 members of council including our incumbent Mayor Harmon will be strong, accomplished and qualified women leading our city. Although ballots are still being counted, incumbent Pease is slated to be reelected to her seat, followed by former Mayor/Councilmember Jan Marx poised to take Aaron Gomez’ seat. With 97% of the ballots counted as of the last update, we’re in the homestretch. You guys down at the County Clerk Recorder need us to drop off some Gatorade?
