San Mateo County election results

The semi-official election results for San Mateo Country have been posted. For the two elections we were watching at

  • In the county, Ira Ruskin (D) [37,877] defeated Steve Poizner (R) [29,833]. This margin is substantially narrower than other state or national elections in San Mateo County. These results need to be added with the contributions from the portions of Santa Clara County that make up Assembly District 21; results from the California Secretary of State suggest that Ruskin will win the district.
  • Measure Q was defeated, with 10,214 votes for and 12,109 votes against.
