Where to get election results

Newsom carrying Nevada County

This is a big election day in California, and the country (and county) is watching:

Update around midnight: So far, local results show Miller leading Hodge for District 3 Supervisor; Moon, Smithers and Foster in a close race for Sheriff (expect a runoff); Newell over Jennings in a close race for DA, and Diaz in a big lead for clerk-recorder.

“A rough estimate of ballots remaining to be counted is between 12,000 and 15,000 ballots,” YubaNet is reporting.

    1. Ha! What are YOUR comments? I’ll say something when the second batch of returns come in tonight. I’ve been in touch with the Elections Office, and the Truckee returns are on their way. It might be until Friday until the final numbers are known, however, because a large number of voters showed up to vote late today and a large number of ballots were dropped off at the Elections Office. We are, however, removing our campaign sign for Greg Diaz from the front yard as we speak, because he has won handily, I predict. Experience counts.

    1. A big congratulations to Mr Diaz on his victory!!! I’m very proud to have cast my vote for him

  1. Well, some of the cheap shot, racially tinged, campaign messaging from Diaz’s opponents crossed a line and that likely turned voters off.

    1. No way to know how many of those 15,000 ballots were cast by Nevada City voters, but for Evans and Erin –– who now wait until Monday noon to learn which one of them will be sitting at the council table until 2022 –– another four days will seem like four weeks. Meantime, congratulations to Duane, who was able to pop the bubbly on election night.

      In 1996, when there were three city council seats open and six candidates on the ballot, I managed to hold on to the third seat by two votes, (including a recount), so I can appreciate the anxiety Evans and Erin might be experiencing right now.

      Looking at the returns, I see that under-voting remains an important election strategy. If someone votes for only one candidate rather than two, that’s a powerful vote. Some folks might think it’s a sneaky way to get an advantage over other candidates, but it’s been happening as long as elections are based on the top-two or top-three being declared winners.

    1. And those vocal locals “with the shape of an ‘L’ on their forehead” (AKA losers) are still grinding their axes over on Todd’s blog. What a hoot!

      1. Except for the occasional newcomer it’s pretty much just “anonymous” and Todd. Like talking into a mirror.
        Legends in their own mind.

  2. I loved his comment today that Grass Valley is the ‘economic engine’ of Nevada County.

    First, don’t get me wrong, I love Grass Valley and Nevada City, and in many ways would rather live there–um except in the summer when it’s too hot and the winter when it doesn’t snow enough–but the food, the arts, the businesses, the people…love them all.

    Second, it’s important to remember that we are all in this together, and our county should be all in it together.

    But consider this…


    1. You’re right, Todd did say that. Of course, Todd wouldn’t know an “economic engine” if it was sitting on blocks in his front yard! ROFLOL

  3. The Juvinall blog has spun out of control tonight. I think it eats at them that Greg Diaz won again — by a landslide. Greg rents a lot of space inside their noggins. ROFLOL.

  4. It’s a beautiful afternoon for most of us, but Barry and Todd are becoming unhinged on Todd’s blog. No, Barry I am not a “close friend” of Linda Campbell. I have never met her or even spoken to her. No, Todd, I am not “close friends and a confidant” of Linda Campbell. As I said, I have never met her or even spoken to her. Todd and Barry ought to go on a hike with Dr. Phil!

    1. I find it amazing how often these dimwits just pull their “facts” out of their a***s. Absolutely no shame or self awareness. Remember Jeff when I was declared one of your sock puppets by these morons? They think their “brilliant” delusions are reality.

  5. After reading the ongoing thread between Barry and Todd on Todd’s blog tonight, I’m not even sure Dr. Phil could help them. Yikes!
