Vote counting continues at elections office, South County supervisors race is tight 

Vote counting continues at elections office

County Clerk-Recorder Tommy Gong at the County Elections Office.

–They’re still counting ballots at the San Luis Obispo County Elections office in San Luis Obispo County. County Clerk-Recorder Tommy Going told the Paso Robles Daily News late Thursday afternoon that his staff will count the remaining 32,000 to 33,000 county-wide ballots Friday and Monday. The results will be released early next week, he said.

It does not appear that the remaining ballots will change results in either of the North County supervisorial district races. John Peschong’s lead is insurmountable with the remaining ballots. Supervisor Debbie Arnold’s lead is not likely to change appreciably.

But in South County’s third supervisorial district, where Stacy Karsgaden has about a 300 vote lead over Supervisor Adam Hill, those 5,000 to 6,000 ballots may impact the outcome. The outcome should be clear early next week.

Citizens can monitor those results on the clerk recorder’s website.
