Liveblogging election returns
Turnout in precinct 19, where i vote, was 23%, more than double the primary. I'm taking that as a good sign.
Bell with 14256 and Stith 11,256 in the first returns. That's with 87% of the precincts reporting. Looks like Bell will win.
Ali and Harris are neck and neck at around 10,000 votes each.
UPDATE: With 49 out of 57 precincts reporting, Bell has essentially wrapped the election up. David Harris has pulled ahead of Ali by 37 votes.
UPDATE: Kevin's analyzing the precincts remaining to report inthe election. In those precincts, Democrats hold an approximate 5-1 registration edge over Republicans. Based on that, he's calling the mayor's race for Bell.
Looks like all the bonds are passing by a large margin as well.
UPDATE III: With 51 precincts reporting, Farad Ali has pulled ahead of David Harris by 400 votes in the race for the last remaining seat.
UPDATE IV: 53 precincts reporting. Ali has opened up an 800 vote lead.
DE is calling this election for Bell, Catotti, Brown, and Ali. Congratulations to everyone. We'll be back in a little while with some more discussion about the results.
