The San Mateo County Elections Office released updated results from the June 5 primary late Thursday afternoon, and some races continue to remain close with potentially 60,000 or more ballots left to be counted, said Jim Irizarry, Assistant Assessor-County Clerk-Recorder & Chief Elections Officer.
The race for San Mateo County Superintendent of Schools is still too close to call between Gary Waddell and Nancy Magee, with Magee trailing by 501 votes.
Also, several local school measures remain close: a Belmont-Redwood Shores School District $118 parcel tax needs two-thirds to pass and it’s at 64.9 percent; a Cabrillo Unified School District bond measure needs 55 percent to pass and it’s at 54; a Jefferson Union High School District bond measure needs 55 percent and it’s at 53.7 percent.

Ballots are still being counted as many were mailed on Election Day.
“We are picking up ballots from the Postal Service several times a day,” Irizarry said.
The Elections Office will release its next update on results on Tuesday.
