Original post made on Nov 23, 2022

Regardless of your position on the measure, voter turnout was embarrassing.

I’m shocked

(Portion removed because the referenced post was left unapproved because of staffing shortages and lack of time by the one person who monitors (who is doing three other jobs in addition to monitoring this week), not because of "group think.")

We citizens are told that voting is or was our majority responsibility to participate in ‘Democracy,’ but because of happenstance and demonstrably poor performance of the counting process, we are left to many questions- and to question seems to be an offensive response to those in charge. So I will ask again: with such a small outcome to this measure why is it taking so long to complete this task? Furthermore, why are there still more votes coming it? Why haven’t all the votes in California been counted regarding the overall election? One cannot feel secure in the notion that our civic duty was respected.

Ok Pleasanton Weekly, the ball is in your court. Post? Or not?

One wonders if anybody has peeked at the election laws in CAlif and knows counties have a full month to certify the election results.

No points for certifying early.

I mean, I wonder.......

"why is it taking so long to complete this task?"

Perhaps you should get involved in the process if you don't understand. Yes, it is counting, there are so many details about the process that it can take a long time especially as votes are close to a threshold then there really is no leeway. (By this, I mean that if one person or measure is ahead by 10,000 votes and there are only 9,000 votes left to count, you don't have to count the remaining to know if they won or if the measure passed).
