11:03 pm
little bit of time to reflect and think about what next steps look like everywhere in this country. we have a failed criminal justice system. we have a system that has recidivism rates rates of re arrest when people come out of prison and more than two thirds it's a system that is absolutely failing, and we've got to do better, and we've got to think outside the box and we've got to implement policies that are based on evidence and that's exactly what we started to do, but it takes time. in the marina district. that yes, on h recall campaign is celebrating. supporters say they worked hard for this victory organizer mary jiang, former san francisco democratic parts party chair shared her thoughts. not surprised. in the least, san francisco has been a leader on criminal justice reform for decades. i know because i've been there and been a part of it. tessa bodine is not the first progressive district attorney we've had. we have been the leader and have started that trend across the nation, so i'm not the least bit surprised
11:04 pm
franciscans have been overwhelmingly supportive of real responsible criminal justice reform for decades. or san francisco will likely have a new d a in office by early july . now bodine tells me he has started to committee has started a community committee. to think about running for re election for the next election in november of next year. julie and amber mayor london breed makes the choice of who to replace chasing boudin with do we have any idea as to some of the potential people that could be put into that position? well a city hall insider shared with me. what do you think? might be? the shortlist includes san francisco supervisor uh, catherine stephanie. nancy tongue, who ran against chaser boudin in 2019. those are some
11:05 pm
of the names and brooke jenkins, one of the former san francisco prosecutors, who was the volunteer spokesperson for the recall of chaser. alright well again, voters a big decision in san francisco tonight that has been a attracting national attention voters saying no, to, uh we want chasing boudin out of office. amber. thank you. all right now to the south bay, the city of san jose, where the mayor's office is up for grabs. sam liccardo has turned out cindy chavez and matt mehan or 12 in this race tonight, you can see the numbers again 39% for chavez, 32% from mayhem ktvu lamonica peters has been following the race and joins us live. from chavez party, lamonica. yeah, that's right, mike. there will be a new mayor in san jose. but we'll have to wait until november because there will be a runoff race. as you mentioned cindy chavez and matt mayhem are the top two candidates, with cindy chavez, bringing in nearly 40% of the vote. right now i'm at the san
11:06 pm
jose women's club, where cindy chavez, his supporters gathered tonight. there's still a few dozen people left here right now, but there were hundreds of people here when she spoke a little over an hour ago. course she thanked her supporters. she talked about her family, and, most importantly, she wanted people to know that she would make san jose city they could be proud of again now. i also spoke with matt mehan earlier this evening, and he talked about making a serious hard push in the last couple of weeks, you know, knocking on doors, talking to voters and letting them know that he is the person that will bring change to san jose. so i want you to take a listen to what they had to say earlier tonight. it was all about grassroots engagement. we have knocked on tens of thousands of doors held house parties and every neighborhood across the city. as people hear our message . they come to our side and join our campaign, so we just need to keep doubling down on voter outreach. people are excited about is they recognize that you know, i have a track record i'm experienced, but i'm completely
11:07 pm
prepared to take us in a new direction. and so just for those who may not understand if you don't get 50% of the vote, there has to be a runoff so because neither of those candidates earned 50% of the vote, they will be running off against each other in november. and that's what's happening here in san jose, right, julie alright lamonica peters in san jose for us tonight. thanks lamonica. alright let's stay in santa clara county right now. here's a look at the race to replace embattled santa clara county sheriff. laurie smith. this is where it stands. bob johnson with 34% of the vote, and kevin jensen with 30% of the vote. it looks like these two will move on to the general election. coming up later the year in no member smith, by the way, is facing a corruption and criminal misconduct in diamond. the sheriff is retiring. ktvu political reporter, greg lee has been watching the election results come in all night. he's here once again with us for one last time here, and we'll talk a
11:08 pm
lot about what's happening up and down and state, the san francisco district attorney jason bodine, he's out. voters recalled. you've talked about law and order something that was a big topic in san francisco, but also really up and down the state. and that could be driving the votes that we're seeing tonight. what we saw from voters in polls leading up to the election was very much that crime and homelessness remained their top issues, and certainly we saw that sort of manifest itself in san francisco. i said this at 10, but i think it bears repeating. we should not read too much into the chase of boudin recall other than voters in san francisco, where frustrated there were some national headlines regarding sort of this national progressive movement, and i think we should be careful to not over generalized and understand the nuance of a city like san francisco or 93% of voters are democrats case in 930.1 of the races were closely watching tonight the race for attorney general. we want to show you those latest numbers, as expected. democrat rob bonta, the incumbent. lead the pack. 57% nathan hochman republican that was trying to tow the
11:09 pm
moderate line at 17% and eric early, more to the right. he's at 15% it will really be a race for second and perhaps what's most surprising out of that is that and marie schubert, sacramento county d. a. ran as an independent really failed to gain any traction at just 8% so this is an example of why perhaps the san francisco recall vote pakistan's in asylum because barter is a progressive that has been tied to the likes of gascogne embody. alright so votes are still being counted. but by all accounts, this could be a historically low voter turnout. why do you think that is? do you think there is voter fatigue voted fatigue for sure, right, typically in an off gubernatorial year earn off presidential year like this, you expect the votes to go down and they're not to be as large of a turnout, but certainly i think a lot of issues were part of this. people are tired. they had a recall election less than a year ago, they have been voicing their concerns. they're worried about how to make ends meet, so perhaps voting was not the number one priority by and large by some of the numbers. what we
11:10 pm
saw tonight is that boaters primarily wore caucasian white, and they were also older. typically your voters who often vote we did not see a lot of votes from young people, and that will be something that certainly both parties would like to address as we go towards the november and the national spotlight, not just on san francisco. it's also in the city of los angeles right now and the race for mayor there. and you could say the public down there also running out of patience, you know? and karen bass, you know that the congresswoman is running for the seat and she's not winning caruso as you see on your screen, the two of them progressive congresswoman karen bass and billionaire rick caruso , who is sort of like a chameleon because he was a republican that an independent then back to republican and now running in this race as a democrat, a lot of focus on this race for a few reasons. caruso running on a campaign of law and order again, tying this all back together that perhaps voters in los angeles are frustrated and concerned. about crime and homelessness, thinks he has promised to address not to mention the fact that he has spent millions of his own money
11:11 pm
in the last three or four months . getting the word out. i mean, you can't go to l a and not see a rick caruso at every three or four commercials, and certainly that's resonating because right now he is leading bass. and so you could see this more moderate conservative candidate leading the largest city in california, pledged if he does win, he vowed to hit the ground running and crack down on crime. so we'll see what that happens. november it may not just be law and order it could be gas prices, inflation pandemics has been a huge concern for a lot of people and again. we say this often, though, but over the next five months we could see things morph and change because you see how quickly those have changed from gun control. abortion rights what supreme court decides as well as talking about major issues like inflation and how is this affecting my pocketbook? interesting story all around the race in november we go. all right, greg. thank you. thanks, greg. election officials have a lot more counting to do coming up. we're going to take you live
11:12 pm
to contra costa county, where some of that work is still underway tonight. and we also will check in on that race to replace congresswoman jackie speier.

11:15 pm
tally room where they were telling all the votes that came in today for people who voted in person at those polling locations. while other crews went out tonight and also unloaded a bunch of those 37 ballot boxes where you can drop off your mail in ballots. and here's what you see behind me. all of those have arrived. and they're now sorting. those are putting those in different boxes i want to bring in tommy gong, who's the chief deputy clerk recorder, and you've been managing all this stuff today and here in the warehouse. i mean, it's almost busier than it is. up in the telly room. tell us about it. yes, exactly. so this is 153 polling place supplies that have come back, you know, at the end of the election and voters, many, many female voters are dropping off their ballots at the polling place on election day. it's kind of like i think their tradition is still going to their polling place yet being able to vote that vote by mail ballot and so here we have, you know some of the bags that are coming back and it's full of open mail ballot and they're all individually numbered and we scan those in and they come with the security tab. on all about
11:16 pm
security here. i know about the charity. the vote by mail ballots are just and just as important as the poll ballots, and so we treat them equally important in terms of the security. you know, i had someone asked me today on twitter. they asked about double voting and the opportunity to vote by mail and in person, but you would say that could never even happened. yes, exactly. it's with our electronic rosters that we have the polling place. even the ballots that are scanned through our envelope scanning machine as soon as they're scan, then the automatically uploaded in terms of giving voter the voting history. so then, if they should go to a polling place to check in those poll pad electronic grocers are going to say, hey, this voter had already voted. hope i know. let's talk about what these people behind you are doing specifically, they're taking all of those vote by mail ballots that they may have dropped off at the polling locations. and what are they doing with them? and where will these ballots go from here? yes so they have to put these all in
11:17 pm
the same orientation. said that when they go through the envelope scanner, all of the proper barcodes and where the signature is located on the envelope. the machine will capture in all of the correct locations on the envelope. so the work doesn't stop tonight, right? this is going to continue for many more hours and days and weeks ahead. really? yes, exactly. you know there is the canvas of the vote. it's a process that lake takes weeks for us to complete. before we certify the election and the four things essentially that we accomplish is number one. we went to count every eligible voter a ballot, whether it's vocal or in person ballot. we want to ensure that voters only voted once we're still going to be checking on the voting history to ensure that and that's not only within the county but across state lines to because of the statewide voter registration database. links of all 58 counties to detect double voting across county lines. two and then third. we want to be sure that all the proper
11:18 pm
procedures were followed at the polling place. and then lastly, that 1% manual tally of our ballots to be sure that the voting equipment is properly counting ballots. we appreciate your time tonight. we know that your team has been working hard, and we're glad to be part of it to kind of show you behind the curtain a little bit about what's going on here and how they take in all of those ballots. not only after you cast a ballot, but where it goes and the entire process. for now, reporting live in martinez, brooks jarocz. ktvu fox two news . it's interesting to get a glimpse inside a very interesting, delicate operation . careful operation and a busy night for mr gong and his crew. brooks thank you all right now to a big race along the peninsula who will succeed congresswoman jackie speier, who is retiring. assembly member kevin mullin ended the night at the top with the big margin there 41% followed by another democrat. san mateo county supervisor david canada. with 25% it appears, these two will
