The current vote tally has Kuehl ahead 52.78% to 47.22%, 12,029 votes out of less than a quarter-million cast. This is a shockingly low voter turnout in the 3rd Supervisorial District which has about 2 million residents. There are still absentee ballots and provisional ballots to be tallied but Shriver has conceded the race and it is unlikely the result would change.
MadProfessah endorsed Kuehl very early and her win was an incredible bright spot in an otherwise very rough evening of electoral results for Democrats and progressives around the country.
