On November 17, 2020 based on the information provided to the public on the Election Office Website Measure Y was leading by 10 votes. The Yes vote had 22,892 vs No vote of 22,882 .
Here is what the Website said about REMAINING BALLOTS on 11/16/2020.
Estimated Number of Ballots left to Process as of November 16, 2020: 200
That means 200 Ballots for the ENTIRE COUNTY left to be counted 200.
Based on that information and knowing that San Mateo County has 20 Cities and Towns I estimated of the 200 Ballots remaining Measure Y would receive about 40 additional votes based on that I said Measure Y Passed. Remember Measure Y is a City Measure not a Countywide Measure.
To my surprise Measure Y received 92 additional votes out of the 200 Remaining Ballots. Measure Y is now leading by 34 votes. You would think that raps it up and Measure Y has Passed as I stated when the Yes was leading by 10 votes.
Not so fast, this is San Mateo County. Remember Measure W awhile back.
Estimated Number of Ballots left to Process as of November 18, 2020: 200
Estimated Number of Ballots left to Process as of November 20, 2020: 200
The YES on Y is still Leading by 35 Votes and yes you guessed it there are still 200 Ballots to be counted.
This doesn’t help with the confidence Americans have with our Elections Process.
