[UPDATE: Unofficial Winners] Election Night Mendocino: Stay Tuned With Us This Evening as the Votes Come In

It’s a big night for democracy in Mendocino County. This evening, the results of this year’s California primary elections are coming in and MendoFever is here to tell you what you need to know when it comes to the races that hit closest to home.

Some considerations:

  • We will be reporting as each dump of votes is reported on the Mendocino County Elections website. These are not the official tallies. As various precincts report their numbers, the results will most likely shift considerably.
  • Considering the hyper-local focus of our newsroom, we will report on the races close to home including our Mendocino County’s Superintendent of Schools, Mendocino County’s 3rd District Supervisor, and Mendocino County’s 5th District Supervisor, and Mendocino County’s Sheriff.
  • We are excluding some of those on the ballot because they are running unopposed.

Now, the first round of numbers coming in at 8:06 p.m. with 3,461 of 52,602 (6.58%) registered voters’ ballots being counted.

    • I guess being a “squealer” doesn’t really get the mileage it used to. But really, what qualified James for sheriff, besides gaining notoriety by airing peoples dirty laundry? Didn’t feel he dressed even remotely appropriately for the position and doesn’t really look healthy enough either. I’m happy the incumbent will prevail in this instance.

  1. Here we are basically 24 hours later and we still can’t get the votes counted in the county. They are also saying something like 2 weeks to get a final count. It’s like we’re living in a third world country.
