In a shocking turn of events that just brings to mind the saying “don’t count your chickens before they’re hatched”, Richmond City Councilmember Jovanka Beckles took the lead over Oakland City Councilmember Dan Kalb, and in a dramatic 284 vote swing. Now, the race for the number two place in the “top two” (behind lead vote-getting Buffy Wicks) in this California Primary has taken a new look, with Beckles essentially catching up to, then tying, then going past Kalb all in the space of one Friday day.

The vote picture now looks like this: Beckles 12,136 votes versus 11,851 votes for Kalb. That put Jovanka 284 votes ahead of Kalb. Prior to the new Friday report from Contra Costa County, Kalb was 304 votes ahead. What the Contra Costa County Friday report did was add 1,686 new votes for Beckles from that county, versus 815 votes for Kalb, again, from Contra Costa County. Add to that the 1,417 Alameda County votes for Beckles and 3,103 new votes were added for Beckles that Friday against 2,515 votes for Kalb.

Now, Dan Kalb has a dwendling number of days and a 284 point gap to hope gets filled by the grace of God, if that’s what God wants to happen.

Meanwhile, Buffy Wicks knows she’s the front runner, and with that, can already start planning for the next phase of this election battle.

Stay tuned.

    Can we get a reporter that knows how to subtract. It’s 288 difference. 12,136 – 11,851. Not 588. I guess this includes the editors who usually come up with the headline.

      I’ll take the hit for that one. It was at 284, published and written that way, then I changed it at 4 am – and due to a complete misread of what I, myself, wrote, and because of exhaustion.

    Rather than reading reporting about what this god or that god wants for Assembly District 15 election results, I would much rather hear where these additional ballots came from 3 days after the election (eg. absentee, military, provisional, glitches at polling places?) and how many ballots are still not yet counted and why.

      Except for the God comment, I agree. I’ve received the data but not the votes to be counted – I have an email out with those questions. The websites of the local election offices for Alameda and for Contra Costa don’t report votes that were collected, but to be counted in total. So, it reads 100% reported, but that does not mean counted. So the updating will be constant. Thanks for keeping me on my toes. And if you find any good information to add to this, please notify me.
