19th Senate District Update (11/12): SB Gains for HBJ Lost in LA

Yesterday, Hannah-Beth Jackson gained on Tony Strickland in Santa Barbara County only to lose that gain in the votes counted in Los Angeles County. Wanting to make sure I didn't have a mess up of Alaskan proportions, I double checked my numbers as math was never my best subject. Sure enough, it showed the difference between them to be the exact same as yesterday, even with 4,604 more votes having been counted. Strickland is still 540 votes ahead. As the line graph hasn't changed all that much, I offer a slightly different look with the over time graph today that shows the trends are staying similar across the district.

In other local races, Ed Heron has increased his lead over Charlotte Ware to 418 votes for the 3rd school board seat. In Carpinteria, Kathleen Reddington has increased her 17 vote lead over Steve McWhirter to 41 votes for the 2nd council seat.

It might be interesting to add a "totals" column to your graph, showing the total for for each candidate... Thanks for your work!

Sure thing! Been concentrating on the difference rather than the totals -- will do. I think there may be a few more updates before this is over.
