CA-Controller: Yee Leads Perez by 376 Votes

With 6,980 new ballots just counted in Mendocino county Betty Yee now leads John Perez by 376 votes for 2nd place in the California controller race. While the Secretary of State's website says there are 178,805 ballots still to be counted, this isn't as current as the county websites. There are no more than 100,000 ballots left to be counted. Many of these are provisional and I've seen times when more than half of those aren't valid. There will be a release by Los Angeles county later today. The county says that 30,232 ballots remain to be counted. Perez should retake second if even 8,000 ballots are valid and counted.

Yee's big hopes are from Sonoma, Humboldt, and Placer counties. The SoS website for all three show a good amount of ballots outstanding but none of them have released any new ballot counts since right after election day. So I'm not sure if they actually do have those ballots left. This makes a prediction difficult, but I'll stick with Betty Yee to have more votes when the Secretary of State certifies. Then it's recount time.
