After another significant update to the count today, we’ve now increased our lead to 160 votes. While it is good to see the trend favoring us, there are still about 33,000 ballots in the county to be tallied.
As I have counseled all along, please remain patient while the counting process continues. The remaining ballots could affect the outcome, and it’s important we allow the final word to come from the voters themselves.
The Sacramento County Registrar of Voters and her team have done a wonderful job ensuring a fair and open process, despite working nonstop for more than two weeks straight. This is reflection of the best of our citizens. I thank them for continuing to diligently get the vote counted.
We expect another small update tomorrow afternoon. The final results are likely to come the week after Thanksgiving.
Thank you for your patience, friendship, and love.
