One more thing before we leave for the weekend: Marti Emerald’s lead over April Boling has expanded slightly with the counting of about 1,600 more votes in the District 7 City Council race.

Emerald now leads by 533 votes. Her lead has undulated since the county began counting the extra absentee and provisional ballots that remained; at last count, it had narrowed to 452 votes.

In Chula Vista, Pamela Bensoussan has captured the lead for the first time — by only 11 votes out of the 65,711 cast against Russ Hall.

The Registrar of Voters reports that 45,000 votes countywide remain to be counted. It’s unclear how many of those would affect the two City Council races.
