Nov. 6 Election Final Tallies

Some Campbell races tightened up when the 200,000 vote-by-mail ballots and 35,000 provisional ballots cast across the county were all counted. The tallies will be certified Dec. 4.

 

The Santa Clara County Registrar of Voters completed its final vote tally of the Nov. 6 election shortly before Thanksgiving, counting the outstanding 200,000 vote-by-mail ballots and verifying about 35,000 provisional ballots cast.

Turnout for the general election was high. Of 817,837 voters in Santa Clara County, nearly 80 percent, or 653,237 came out to vote. In the case of some vote-by-mail precincts, turnout was in the 90 to 100 percent range.

And while the outcomes of local elections haven't changed, the numbers and the fractions of percentage points tightened up over the 15-day counting period. Because the county has a high number of vote-by-mail ballots, some candidates increased their total vote count by as much as 34 percent.

The Campbell High School District Board of Trustees candidates were neck-in-neck on who would clinch the second board seat, after new comer Kalen Gallagher secured the first. As of Nov. 26, 5:00 p.m., Linda Goytia secured the seat, with a 554-vote lead.

We've provided some select races below. An asterisk * indicates an incumbent candidate.

The figures are described at the "unofficial, semi-final election results," and the site is showing zero mail-in ballots to count and zero provisional ballots to verify. 

The Registrar will certify the election results on Dec. 4.
