With over 93,000 citywide ballots yet to be processed and counted, the District 7 race for Supervisor is looking more and more like a nail biter between the race current leader, Francis Crowley, and Norman Yee.
After 6 rounds of Ranked Choice Voting iterations, Crowley (9062 votes) leads Yee (8724 votes) by 338 votes.
If current trending continues, with more votes transferring from Supervisor Sean Elsbernd-endorsed candidate, Michael Garcia, to Crowley than to Yee, Crowley will likely be crowned District 7 Supervisor.
The Department of Elections said of the 93,000 uncounted citywide ballots, 49,000 ballots are from polling stations, 20,000 are vote by mail ballots and 24,000 are provisional ballots. District 7 is one of 6 odd-numbered districts where residents voted for a district supervisor on the eleven-member Board of Supervisors.
Updates will be made available at 4 pm each day until all the ballots have been processed and counted, the Department of Elections said.
