The Chula Vista City Council race between Democrat Pamela Bensoussan and Republican Russ Hall is going right down to the wire.
Bensoussan is trailing Hall by 119 votes, according to the official vote tally from the San Diego County Registrar of Voters, which includes 100 percent of votes cast on Tuesday.
But Bensoussan said that result doesn’t include the possibly thousands of absentee and provisional ballots that were cast but haven’t yet been counted. Those votes are just starting to be counted by the registrar, Bensoussan said.
“It’s just a dead heat and we want those early votes to count,” she said.
