Daly still leads in D6; Jew edges Dudum in D4

After five passes under the city’s instant voter runoff system Supervisor Chris Daly is still leading in his District 6 race. According to elections returns posted Friday, November 10 ( Daly had 7,484 votes or 50.22 percent of the 14,902 eligible ballots counted so far. After the first round of voting Tuesday, Daly had 48 percent of the vote, falling just shy of having the majority needed to win his re-election campaign outright. Second place finisher Rob Black had 6,248 votes as of Friday, up from the 6,080 he received on election day.

In the District 4 race to fill the seat being vacated by Assemblywoman-elect Fiona Ma, Ron Dudum dropped out of his first place finish from Tuesday after Ed Jew pulled ahead with a more than 600-vote lead after four passes under the IRV system. Jew had 7,670 votes or 52.12 percent of the 14,716 eligible ballots cast. Dudum trailed Jew with 7,046 votes. On Tuesday in unofficial returns Dudum had taken first place with 4,752 votes while Jew came in with 4,705 votes.

Linda Tulett, deputy director of the Elections Department, said the vote counts are still preliminary totals. The department will not release its next ranked choice voting results until Tuesday, November 14.

“There are still a couple thousand ballots that need to be tabulated,” Tulett told the Bay Area Reporter. “We plan to be done with as much as we can at that time.”
