With close races in SLO Co., some ballots still need to be counted
Ballot counters are taking a break Tuesday to observe Veteran's Day according to Julie Rodewald, the San Luis Obispo County Clerk-Recorder.
Although, midterm elections ended a week ago, determining new measures and elected officials, some races are still unsettled in San Luis Obispo County.
Rodewald said provisional and mail-in ballots will determine tight races in Arroyo Grande, Grover Beach Pismo Beach and Paso Robles.
The county will have reportable numbers Wednesday at 5 p.m.
Last week, Rodewald predicted the percentage of mail-in ballots from this election will exceed the typical number.
She said it takes longer to count mail-in ballots and this process is affecting Central Coast counties.
The influx of mail-ballots requires more time process each and these ballots in San Luis Obispo may affect the results of some of these tight races.
Rodewald described why counting mail-in ballots is a meticulous task.
