Oakland ballot count names Dellums winner

OAKLAND, Calif. - Former Rep. Ron Dellums appeared to win the mayor's race late Friday after a final ballot count showed he got the majority of votes needed to avoid a November runoff.

Officials, however, have until July 4 to certify the results from the June 6 election.

Dellums was the top vote-getter among a field of six with 50.2 percent, compared to City Council President Ignacio De La Fuente's 33.0 percent, according to the Alameda County Registrar of Voters. City councilwoman Nancy Nadel had 13.1 percent.

The Associated Press had called the race for Dellums on June 7, but the decision was later reversed after it became clear that thousands of absentee and provisional ballots still needed to be counted.

Oakland is coming around! Now if Aimee Allison wins in her City Council District, we can have a real progressive future here in the Bay Area.

2. Funny that.
"thousands of absentee and provisional ballots still needed to be counted" in San Diego County but they swore in Bilbray.
