We had an amazing Election Day yesterday with tons of volunteers helping get out the vote, and a wonderful celebration last night of our accomplishments. The end of the campaign isn’t here until every vote is counted in a fair and transparent manner.
While we are up by 28 votes today, there remain many thousands of uncounted vote-by-mail ballots and provisional votes. The County Registrar has up to 21 days to finish the count and certify the vote. We must remain positive and patient while the outstanding vote is tallied.
The County Registrar has a solid track record of fair counting, and I am hopeful that no voter will be disenfranchised by the process or the participants.
I am very proud of the effort we put forward throughout this long campaign. You’ve earned a chance to rest and reflect on our journey.
PS- If you have a campaign lawn sign, the city gives us some time after the election to take them down. To keep yours, please take it down and store it. If you’d prefer the campaign keep it, then please drop it off on my porch at 1021 F Street or leave it up for us to collect on Friday.
