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.
