The Alameda Country Registrar of Voters released its latest vote count at 5 p.m. Nov. 12. There were still an estimated 8,000 ballots remaining to be counted as of Tuesday, Nov. 13. The registrar’s office appears to be counting about 1,000 ballots per day. New information has tended to widen the gap in most races as it has been released.
In the race for Alameda Mayor, Marilyn Ezzy Ashcraft has a lead of 1,114 votes over next closest contender Trish Spencer. Ashcraft has 41.79 percent of the vote and Spencer, 37.29 percent. There were also 130 write-ins.
