more results and analysis

With a few precincts starting to trickle in, here's what we have: Ma 58, Reilly 41; this is narrowing a bit. Yee, 66, Nevin 28, Papan 5; unless San Mateo is WAY for Nevin, this...

Ballot measures

Results for the props are interesting, too. Prop. A is behind, 53-47, but that's the conservative side of town showing up in the absentees. So there's a good chance it will survive. Prop. B,...

first results

maybe tomorrow

By Tim Redmond At City Hall Just in case anyone hasn't figured this out yet, we may not know until tomorrow who the Democratic candidate for governor is. That's because Alameda County, which hasabout five percent...

turnout looks bleak

By Tim Redmond SF Gate is reporting low turnout and bored election workers playing sudoku. In Bernal Heights, where I live, the poll workers told me it had been very slow -- and that's not...

What happened to our Web site?

By Tim Redmond Well, the simple answer is that we're still not sure -- but there's some indication that we were socked by a denial-of-service attack. Imagine that happening on 6/06/06, in the middle of...

666
