A Humboldt County Elections Office official said this morning that it was too early to determine how many ballots are left to count.

Registrar of Voters Carolyn Crnich said the office was sifting through everything that was sent back from the precincts and making sure the vote-by-mail and provisional ballots were identified.

"We certainly hope to have a count of those and how many there are ... so we can get an idea of how many we have left to count," Crnich said.

Before numbers are available, Crnich said ballots from the precincts need to be examined.

"I know we have about almost 2,200 that came in the mail on Monday and Tuesday, and then we picked up a bunch at the post office at 8 o'clock last night," she said. "I would say there's somewhere between several hundred and a few thousand."

Crnich said she anticipates numbers will be available this afternoon.

Unofficial results indicate a decisive victory for district attorney candidate Maggie Fleming and 5th District Supervisor Ryan Sundberg, who took their races with 60.96 and 61.09 percent of the vote, respectively. The 4th District race between incumbent Virginia Bass and challenger Chris Kerrigan was closer, but Bass appears to have retained her seat with 53.31 percent of the vote in the election night final results. The two are separated by 303 votes.
