vote_lede_template.jpg11:44 PM: OK! We have 100% of SF precincts reporting, so these are probably the final final results. I say “probably” because there are still a lot of absentee ballots to count, but these are the last results we’ll get tonight.

The winners tonight: Vehicle Registration Fee (AA), the earthquake bond (A), Mayor meets with the Supes (C), reduction in the number of health service board elections (F), Muni reform (G), Saturday voting (I), sit/lie (L), and increasing the real property transfer tax (N).

Losers are pension reform (B), non-citizen voting in school board elections (D), election day voter registration (E), banning elected officials from serving on political party committees (H), 2 hotel tax measures (J and K), and SFPD foot patrols (M).

10:57 PM: We’re getting close to the end, folks: with 98.47% of precincts reporting, the results we’re seeing now are probably the results we’re going to be living with.

You’ll probably be paying $10 more to register your car, as the measure to add this fee to fund transportation projects is winning 59% to 40%. Whoever ends up as mayor had better add “Supes” to their calendar, as the measure requiring him or her to regularly meet with the Board of Supes has won 60% to 40%.

Measure D, which would have allowed non-citizens to vote in SF school board elections, is losing 54% to 45%, as is Measure E, which would have allowed same-day voter registration in SF.

10:33 PM: We’re getting closer to the end, folks — we now have 70.68% of the precincts reporting, or 133,228 of a possible 461,771 ballots counted.

How are things going for our SF propositions? Muni reform’s still winning 65% to 34%, Sit/Lie’s a but closer, with 55% for to 44% against. SF seems to like the idea of Saturday elections: that one’s running 58% for to 41% against.

9:44 PM: We’ve 202 out of 590 precincts (34.24%) reporting as of 9:44 tonight, that’s 85049 ballots counted out of a possible 461771.

Muni reform and Sit/Lie are still winning, and pension reform’s losing. Measure C, known by some as “question time” and which would require the mayor to regularly address the Board of Supes is also winning — however, since state result reports have Gavin Newsom leading in the Lt. Governor race, guess that’ll be the next guy/woman’s problem.

Prop G, which is meant to reform Muni, is kicking total ass, with 70% of the vote. Prop L, known as the Sit/Lie ordinance, is winning 63.16% to 36.84%. Prop B, the pension reform measure, is pretty close — 48% in favor, 51% against.
