Crowley and Jackson retain narrow leads as more ballots counted

Labor leader F.X. Crowley retained a 98 vote lead over Board of Education President Norman Yee as more ballots were counted in the race for the District 7 seat on the Board of Supervisors.

Department of Election employees counted another 527 District 7 ballots on Friday, leaving about 7,500 votes still uncounted as of the weekend. Department staff intend to continue counting votes through the weekend and into next week.

Under the most recent vote tally released Friday at 4 p.m., Yee received the most first-place votes at 7,899 to Crowley’s 6,803. But Yee was 98 votes behind Crowley after some voters' second- and third-choice selections were redistributed once their first selection was disqualified under The City's ranked-choice voting system. Under ranked-choice voting, when no candidate receives more than 50 percent of the vote, those candidates with the least votes are eliminated and the second- and third-place selections of their supporters are redistributed. The process continues until one candidate receives a majority.

Meanwhile, in the close race for the fourth and final seat on the Community College Board, incumbent Chris Jackson’s lead over challenger Amy Bacharach shrunk to just 355 votes. On Thursday, Jackson had led by 549 votes.
