Based on a preliminary election day tally of 115,265 votes, which represents 23.28 percent of a potential 495,050 votes which could have been cast in San Francisco, here are the likely results for the two real estate related ballot measures we’re tracking:
Proposition A (Issuance of a $600 Million Affordable Housing Bond): 69% YES / 31% NO
Proposition E (Expedited Approval for Affordable Housing Projects on Public Lands): 74% YES / 26% NO
And as always, regardless of how you voted, thank you to those who did.
UPDATE: While we’re not expecting the results for the two measures above to change, according to the Department of Elections, there are an estimated 70,000 ballots left to be counted, including 57,000 vote-by-mail ballots and 13,000 which were cast provisionally, which would yield a total voter turnout of around 37.4 percent versus 74.5 percent in last November’s mid-term election and 80.7 percent in November of 2016.
