Perata and Schaaf Lead, Kernighan and Brooks Win

Ex-state Senator Don Perata has a solid lead in the Oakland mayor’s race, garnering 35 percent of the vote. Councilwoman Jean Quan is second with 24 percent, followed by Councilwoman Rebecca Kaplan in third with 21 percent. The county registrar reports that 100% of precincts are in, but there are still thousands of late absentees and provisionals to count. The registrar plans to update results through the end of the week, and then run an unofficial count of ranked choice voting, tabulating second- and third-place choices, on Friday afternoon. Final results, however, may not be known until next week.
