Election results have been updated, as of 5pm June 9.
The Election Division of the Santa Clara County Registrar of Voters continued to count ballots today, and reported that as of 5 pm June 9, approximately 30% of the city ballots remained to be counted.
Santa Clara County Supervisor Cindy Chavez and City Councilmember Matt Mahan will likely be the two candidates for mayor of San Jose on the November ballot, based on unofficial, incomplete returns.
With Measure B approval holding steady at 55%, the winner of the General Election will serve for two years, and be eligible for re-election to another two four-year terms. The measure will shift the city's mayoral elections to presidential election years, shifting from the current gubernatorial election calendar.
With 97,121 votes counted as of 5pm June 9, the vote totals for the two big spenders in the primary campaign, Chavez and Mahan, held steady, running away from the field by substantial margins.
Chavez had 39% of the vote, with 38,161 votes, compared to 32.6% for Mahan, with 31,832, according to the latest unofficial returns reported by the Santa Clara County Registrar of Voters Election Division.
The other five candidates, council members Dev Davis and Raul Peralez, retired San Jose police officer Jim Spence and students Travis Hill and Marshall Woodmansee split the remaining 28 percent of the early returns. Davis had the third highest total at 10.5%.
The top two candidates, in terms of campaign spending and fundraising, Chavez and Mahan, reported they had spent 824,000 and $760,000, respectively, as of May 21.
All candidates collectively raised more than $2.6 million and PACs contributed another $1.5 million.
