The results show that in the south county Jimmy Paulding is the likely winner in the 4th district, replacing Lynn Compton as supervisor. Compton made a run at the end, but Paulding has about 52% of the vote, so it’s mathematically almost impossible for Compton to catch him.
County-wide there are still 2,845 votes to be counted.
