Update on Santa Clara County

Update on Santa Clara County

Update: Wednesday, November 16, 5pm

In Santa Clara County, elections has now counted 90% of the votes and updated the YES lead to 67.33%. While Measure A is still strongly positioned to pass, we may not have final results for a few more days.

Los Altos Town Crier has the update on when we might expect final results:

“As of Monday, the Santa Clara County Registrar of Voters had counted 100,000 vote-by-mail ballots, approximately half of those received on or after the Nov. 8 election. An additional 40,000 provisional ballots also remain to be counted. The Registrar most likely won’t finish counting until next week, according to spokeswoman Anita Torres.

“For tight races, automatic recounts are a possibility that pushes out the election timeline yet further. In Santa Clara County, close races trigger an automatic recount if the contest’s margin of victory is less than either 0.5 percent of ballots cast or 25 votes or fewer.”


As shared earlier in the week, Alameda County and San Mateo County have conclusive results at this time, with both campaigns celebrating victories on Measure A1 and K respectively.

  • In Alameda County, Measure A1 has been declared a WIN with 72.88% YES.
    (Updated 11/16 at 4:36pm)
  • In San Mateo County, Measure K has been declared a WIN, with 70.1%
    YES. (Updated 11/15)

Stay tuned, as we’ll continue posting news out of Santa Clara County as we receive updates.
