HEADLINE
PORTILLO WINS RUNOFF

Portillo takes lead in early voting and mail ballots.  The BV is calling it on the early voting.  It would be nearly impossible to overcome this lead - The Elections office is reporting no mail ballots.

UPDATE ON MAIL BALLOTS - The count was updated to show 3 for Portillo and 1 for Sarkis

PORTILLO  501    62.14

SARKIS        304    37.76

ELECTION DAY RESULTS

We should see the results starting to post between 7:30 and 7:45

                           EARLY VOTING      ELECTION DAY

PORTILLO        501                             183

SARKIS              304                              230

                          TOTAL                        PERCENTAGE
PORTILLO        687                               56.22
SARKIS              535                               43.78

The election day results show the Sarkis ad was effective - a big turn around in how people voted.

These results are final

SIDE NOTE:

The BV posted the early vote returns at 7:08 p.m.  As of 8:06 the Herald has yet to post any returns.  Did they forget there was an election?


WHY THE LOW VOTER TURNOUT?

People had a simple choice - a puppet or con artist?  Not much of choice.  There is no civic duty to have to choose between a puppet or con artist - until real qualified people run for public office the people will continue to stay home.

The District has 20,165 eligible voters - only, 1,222 voters voted.  This is an indictment on the quality of candidates running for office.
