Counting Status (Update)

UPDATE . . . . RESULTS as of 5pm 11/10/2020:

Returns are updated as county process vote-by-mail and provisional during the 30-day canvass period. There are 9,400 mail-in ballots left to count
An increase from 38% (as counted on election night) to 79% of eligible voters cast ballots (5% of which voted at the polls).

This is an unexpected high turnout compared to prior elections.   Nearly half the ballots arrived by mail in the final week.

There was a minor bump up of percentiles for Republicans as they counted through the mail-in ballots sent in the week of the election.

(When I dropped my ballot off at the Livermore City Hall DropBox, it got to Oakland the very next day.   It appears that they pick up from the official heavy steel dropboxes daily.  Saves five days in the postal system.)

Urge Governor Newsom to veto SB 27

Even Jerry Brown vetoed this dumb California bill, and Gavin Newsom should too

Contact Governor Newsom today, and urge him to veto SB 27, referred to as the, "Presidential Tax Transparency Act and Accountability Act". It would require presdential candidates to release their tax returns if they want to appear on the ballot in California. Note that neither candidates for the US House of Representatives, like Nancy Pelosi, nor candidates for the US Senate, like Diane Feinstein would have to divulge their tax returns.

The phone number for the Governor's office is:

(916) 445-2841

Or go to the following website and contact the Governor:

SB-419 Lets Students Willfully Defy Their Teachers

California could soon ban schools from suspending ‘unruly’ students

This bill will prevent Teachers from suspending defiant students.  Students can be disruptive and refuse to work without consequences.  According to this bill, Teachers still can remove disruptive students.  However, many Administrators and office staff will send the students back to the classroom. These students will have a very hard time in the world of work as employers will not put up with disrespect and disruptive behavior. It is in the students’ best interest, (especially minority students and students with disabilities) to learn in a structured environment. Also, students should be encouraged to show proper respect to Teachers.

Please write letters to the editors, call your legislators, contact parent groups and go to school board meetings.  We absolutely have to stop this.  If students can be defiant and disobediant and refuse to follow instruction, they are not learning the life skills they are going to need to work in life.
