<![CDATA[The Yolo County Elections Office formally certified the Nov. 6 general election with no significant change in wins for any of the candidates or measures on the local ballot. The certified results revealed Measure P, the Winters Joint Unified School District bond measure that sought to raise millions for school-related upgrade projects, passed with a sizable vote in favor of the initiative. The total "yes" votes counted were 1,873, nearly 1,000 more votes than those who formally opposed the measure. For the Yolo County Board of Education, Melissa Moreno widened her lead against challenger David Murphy with 66 percent of votes in her favor to his 34 percent of votes. More than 8,800 people cast a vote for Moreno in what was largely considered a cordial and friendly race between the two candidates. The Yolo Elections Office said last month they were seeing a record increase in the number of people registering to vote, and that number was reflected in data reported by the California Secretary of State's office: Sixty-six percent of registered voters in Yolo County cast a ballot in the election, significantly higher than the amount of people who voted in the earlier June 5 primary. Yolo County's voter turnout rate was higher than the statewide average of 64 percent, though some counties were still processing mail-in ballots according to the Secretary of State's website, suggesting that number could increase over the next several weeks. The latest election results are available on the Winters Express Election Coverage webpage. ]]>
