Final Election Results Released for Napa County

The wait is over: Napa County elections chief John Tuteur has certified the final official results for the Nov. 6 election, and there were no upsets lurking in the totals. Updated with voter statistics.

Residents of Calistoga no longer have to wonder who their next mayor will be: It's Chris Canning, who defeated Paul Knoblich by less than 60 votes (926-868) in the Nov. 6 election.

The Napa County Election Division Tuesday certified the results of that general election and posted them online with precinct-detail certified statements of vote inked to the ballot contests.

We've included the complete tallies at the end of this article; here are some quick links from the Election Division website:

John Tuteur, Napa County Registrar of Voters, said the additional 24,957 ballots that were counted after Nov. 6 and are now included in the final certified results did not change the outcome of any contest published on election night, even though vote margins did change. 

In the race to represent Napa County District 2 on the board of supervisors, for instance, incumbent Mark Luce only extended his Election Night margin of victory over challenger Mark Van Gorder by a slender fraction of a percent.

Unofficial results gave Luce almost 51.98 percent of the vote to Van Gorder's 48.02 percent, while the final count was 52.06 percent for Luce, 47.94 percent for Van Gorder out of more than 11,000 district votes.

“I am pleased that once again Napa County voters turned out in greater numbers than the statewide average with 79.45% of registered voters casting ballots,” Tuteur said in a statement. 

In statewide voter turnout Napa County ranks in the top 10 counties having more than 50,000 registered voters, Tuteur said.

"Between Election Day and the release of the certified results on November 27, 2012, election staff and citizen poll workers processed and counted the additional ballots including duplicating 2,260 ballots that could not be read by the optical scanner; resolving 1,275 provisional ballots of which 69.7% were counted and conducting a manual tally of 1,743 ballots selected at random," Tuteur wrote.

“These post Election Day procedures allow candidates and the public to have confidence in the ballot tabulation and optical scanning technologies that we use,” he added.

Tuteur provided other statistics including:

  • Vote by mail voters are 84.79% of county registered voters
  • Vote by mail voters cast 89.17% of all ballots cast.
  • Vote by mail permanent voters turnout was 87.73% of those who received ballots   
  • Vote by mail precinct voters turnout was 78.76% of those who received ballots
  • Polling place voters turnout was 56.59% of those who received sample ballot pamphlets
