Nearly all of the ballots have been counted for San Joaquin County from the Nov. 8 election, and the results for local races remain mostly unchanged from the day after the election 2 weeks ago, when less than half of the ballots had been counted.

The county elections office has reported that 174,344 ballots had been counted as of Tuesday, representing 45.2% of the 385,679 registered voters in San Joaquin County. Registrar of Voters Olivia Hale reported that only about 3,700 ballots are left to count. Only 20.5% of the county’s voters had been accounted for on Nov. 9, the day after the election.

Tracy Mayor Nancy Young now has 43.95% of the vote (9,363) and her closest challenger, Councilwoman Eleassia Davis, gained only about half of a percentage point over the past 2 weeks for 32.45% (6,914).

Young expressed confidence the day after the election that she would retain her role as mayor. On Tuesday Davis posted a statement on Facebook declaring that she has accepted the outcome of the election. Both Davis and Councilman Mateo Bedolla, who also ran for mayor and gained 23.6% of the vote (5,029), have 2 years left to serve on their city council terms.

Incumbent Tracy Councilman Dan Arriola maintained his lead among seven candidates seeking two seats with 22.92% of the vote (8,812), and challenger Dan Evans continues to hold the advantage for the second seat with 17.55% (6,749).

Tracy Unified School District Trustee Steve Abercrombie maintains the lead among eight candidates vying for four seats on the school board with 15.76% (12,404). The three challengers who looked to win the open seats on the school board remain unchanged, but their positions have shifted. Olinga Yarber-Alexander started in fourth place and moved to second place with 13.52% (10,646), Jeremy Silcox was in second place on Nov. 9, dropped to fourth place and now is in third place with 13.3% (10.472), and R.G. Fagin was in third place and now is in fourth place with 13.22% (10,405).

In the race for two seats on the Mountain House Community Services Board of Directors, challenger Matt Disko is the front-runner with 23.26% (1,863) and incumbent Manuel Moreno is in second with 21.73% (1,741).

All incumbents were re-elected to the Lammersville Unified School District Board of Trustees. Vanitha Daniel received 43.15% of the vote (3,390) and Colin Nelson Clements received 37.75 (2,966). Trustee Lisa Boulais was re-elected to a 2-year term with 55.09% (2,636).

All three incumbents for the Tracy Rural County Fire Protection District were re-elected, John Vieira with 26.72% (3,258), Peter Reece with 26.54% (3,236) and Craig Miller with 22.45% (2,737).

Tracy’s Measure B won by a wide margin: 71.81% (15,560) to 28.19% (6,107). The measure changes the city’s business license tax measure to give small businesses a break with a basic flat tax, and tax big businesses based on a percentage of their revenue.

Democratic Congressman Josh Harder won the Ninth Congressional District seat with 54.9% of the vote (93,119), compared to 45.1% (76.591) for Republican Tom Patti, a San Joaquin County Supervisor, though Patti did gain a little, about 1½%, in the late mail-in voting.

Incumbent 13th State Assembly District incumbent Carlos Villapudua wins back his seat with 60.7% of the vote (50,330), and Tracy Mayor Pro Tem Veronica Vargas claimed 39.3% (32,545). Both are Democrats.

In the governor’s race, San Joaquin County voters favored Republican challenger Brian Dahle over Democratic incumbent Gavin Newsom, with Dahle gaining 51.76% of the vote (89,223) in the county over 48.24% (83,169). Newsom won statewide with 59.4% (6,323,860) over 40.6% for Dahle (4,329,270).
