November 11, 2020 (San Diego) – With Santee’s City Council candidates separated by just two votes and Supervisor candidates Joel Anderson and Steve Vaus just seven votes apart, readers have been asking questions. What happens if there is a tie in a local election? (One on social media suggested determining the winner via a duel.)
Does a close race trigger a recount? Have any local races changed when a recount was done? When will the counting be done?
ECM reached out to San Diego Registrar of Voters Michael Vu to get answers to these and other questions.
