Woodside Town Council: District 3 results


The vote count in the contested election for the District 3 seat on the Woodside Town Council shows only votes cast for Nancy Reyering, whose name was on the ballot.

With all precincts reporting, she received 407 votes. Mail-in ballots dropped off on Election Day and in the mail have yet to be counted. The ballots must be postmarked no later than Nov. 3 to be counted.

Her opponent, Chris Shaw, filed as a write-in candidate and his name is not on the ballot.

The San Mateo County Elections Office won't start counting the write-in votes until sometime early next week, after completion of the count of mailed-in ballots received on Election Day and through Friday, Nov. 6, according to Jim Irizarry, the assistant county clerk, recorder assessor.

The write-in votes will be counted manually and should be complete in a matter of hours, he said. The results of the write-in ballot count will be posted on the Elections Office website, Mr. Irizarry said.

There are three other candidates on the ballot, but they are running unopposed for the district 1, 5 and 7 seats. Woodside's council has seven seats. The terms are for four years. The candidates must reside in their districts but they are elected town-wide.

Ms. Reyering was running unopposed for the District 3 seat from August to mid-October, when Mr. Shaw filed as a write-in candidate.

I think it's very likely that Nancy Reyering will prevail in this election.

Judging from the other Woodside vote counts, it would appear that about 600 votes were cast in the election. Nancy received about 400 votes and it is unlikely that write-ins will exceed 200 votes.
