Every day, the OC Registrar counts outstanding late vote-by-mail (VBM) and provisional ballots. And at the end of each day, Jordan Brandman has gained ground on heretofore top-vote-getter Lucille Kring.

At the end of today’s counting, Brandman passed Kring and into first place, by 57 votes.


It should be noted that the ballots being counted since Election Day are ones that were cast late in the campaign — when the OCEA and the Tait-connected “Taxpayers for Safer Neighborhoods” were hitting Brandman on the trumped-up DA “investigation” and other issues.

There are still 11,863 Anaheim ballots left to count: 3,977 VBMs and 7,886 provisionals.
