San Francisco Race Still Too Close to Call

The top two candidates for District 7 switched places in the latest election results released today, but are separated by fewer than 30 votes.

Results released at 4 p.m. Saturday by the San Francisco Department of Elections show Board of Education President Norman Yee is now leading with 50.06 percent of the vote after six rounds of ranked-choice voting.

F.X. Crowley, who has served on the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission and San Francisco Port Commission, was leading by a narrow margin until today, but now holds 49.94 percent of the vote.

The two candidates remain separated by only 29 votes, however, with Crowley receiving 11,352 to Yee's 11,381.

Director of Elections John Arntz said on Friday that the department hoped to finish tallying vote-by-mail ballots for District 7 this weekend and complete provisional ballots, of which there are around 1,900 early next week.

The winner of the race will replace termed-out Supervisor Sean Elsbernd in representing the district in the southwest part of the city that includes the neighborhoods of West Portal and Parkmerced as well as the areas near Twin Peaks, Lake Merced and San Francisco State University.
