vote_lede_template.jpgMidnight: 100% of precincts are reporting, but there are still a lot of absentee ballots to be counted — so in many cases the winner is yet to be named.

But here’s what we have so far: Janet Reilly’s narrowly leading in D2, Jane Kim’s slightly less narrowly leading in D6, Wiener’s way ahead in D8, and Kelly’s still on top in the packed field of D10. Oh, and no one bothered to write in any opponents to D4’s Carmen Chu, so she won, for sure.

11:08 PM: We’re getting very close to the end, my friends — with 581 out of 590 precincts (98.47%) reporting, for these close races it might be a bit before we have a clear winner.

For example, in D10 there are a ton of candidates, all of whom are getting at least a piece of the voting pie. Who’ll win? It’s too soon to know.

The clearest leader seems to be D8’s Scott Wiener, leading with 41% to Rafael Mandelman’s 36%. But, and I can’t say this enough, with ranked choice voting, it’s not over until it’s over.

Per TomPrice’s request, here’s a detailed breakdown of the results so far.

10:42 PM: We’ve got 417 out of 590 precincts reporting, that’s 70.68% of the ballots cast.

Not only does ranked choice voting means that it’s hard to see a clear winner in many races, but close results in several races still make some districts anyone’s game. In D2, for example, Janet Reilly’s pulled ahead of Mark Farrell again, but by only 101 votes. Will it last?

D10 is also super-tight, with the top 4 contenders separated by less than 100 votes.

Jane Kim continues to lead in D6, with 31% of the vote, and Scott Wiener’s got 44% of the D8 vote, putting him on top for now.

9:56 PM: At 9:44, with 202 out of 590 precincts (34.24%) reporting, we’re starting to see some shifts in the candidate races — but, my lord, with ranked choice voting, you can’t set anything in stone just yet.

So what’s changed?Mark Farrell’s just barely pulled ahead of Janet Reilly in D2, and Tony Kelly’s pulled ahead in the D10 race. Oh, and if you were wondering — no one’s written in any candidates to threaten Carmen Chu in D4. That one, we can set in stone.

    I wonder how many uncounted mail ballots are left at City Hall? That could turn some of these close ones into a torture fest worse than the toughest Giants game.

    So the Board of Elections officially has two weeks to process all the ballots, mail-in or otherwise, so the question is how long until the RCV math is checked and rechecked and the results announced? I’m guessing three weeks to the end of the month.

    They’re saying they’ll have the preliminary results by Friday. But, thinking back to good old Ed Jew, when things are really close it does take longer. Guess we’ll know how close things are later this week!
