UPDATED: FINAL RESULTS: COUNTING COMPLETED; MEASURE B1 LOSES IN VERY CLOSE VOTE; BERKELEY MEASURE T ALSO DEFEATED

Updated 9:20 a.m., 11/16: The Alameda County Registrar of Voters reported to the state last night that it finished counting its late-absentee and provisional ballots. The final results show that Measure B1, the countywide tax for transportation, lost by the narrowest of margins, finishing with 66.53 percent of the vote, just short of the 66.67 percent it needed. It lost by 721 votes out of 527,403 cast in that contest.

Measure T, West Berkeley development, also lost, finishing 512 votes short.

In all, 602,479 ballots were cast in Alameda County, a turnout of 74.3 percent. Of that total, more than 200,000 were late-absentee and provisional ballots.

Although there is still more counting to do in Contra Costa County, we’re calling all of the remaining close races that we’d been tracking since Election Night.

If an East Bay contest is not on the below list, then we had already considered that race to be decided. Check our previous posts to find the winners of those races.

Here’s our list of winners in the final contests that we were watching:
