New elections numbers, no change in results
Though their positions have shifted, the top three winners in Sebastopol's City Council race haven't changed
The Sonoma County Registrar of Voters just released the newest numbers from last week’s election. These numbers are not final. Today is the final day that the Registrar’s Office can accept ballots received in the mail postmarked on election day.
Sebastopol City Council Election
The top three winners, who’ll most likely take the three open seats on the Sebastopol City Council, haven’t changed, though Stephen Zollman is now the top vote-getter (1,273 votes, 21.70%), followed by Jill McLewis (1,266 votes, 21.58) and Sandra Maurer (1,202 votes, 20.49%).
Still trailing are Oliver Dick (1,075 votes, 18.33%) and Dennis Colthurst (1,050 votes, 17.90%)
West Sonoma County Union High School District Board Election
Debbie Ramirez, the front runner by a mile, is still widening her lead against David Patrick Nagle.
Sebastopol Union School District Board Election
No significant changes here.
The turnout percentage climbed as expected: 45.7% in the council election, 49.85% in the WSCUHSD board election, 48.49% for the Sebastopol Union board election.
Meanwhile, at the Registrar of Voters Office, the counting continues.
“We are still processing vote by mail ballots received on Election Day from drop boxes, vote centers and in the mail,” said Wendy Hudson, Chief Deputy Registrar of Voters for Sonoma County. “We have no idea how much of the current volume would be from Sebastopol. We have roughly 61,000 ballots left to count.”
