The Sacramento County Elections Office has updated the ballot count from the November 8 general election.

Registrar of Voters Jill Lavine says staff and volunteers have counted an additional 58,000 ballots since Friday and still have 102,000 remaining.

"Those are the ones that came in either on election night or from the polling places, dropped at our drop boxes, or we have (as) a member of the "postmark plus three (group)." We had to wait three days and anything that was mailed on election day and received by Monday -- those are also included in this count."

The County also has 34,000 provisional ballots to count. A provisional ballot is cast if a person's name is not on the list of registered voters at a polling place.

Lavine says her office must finish the regular ballots first before attending to the provisionals.

City of Sacramento's Measure B, a sales tax increase for roads, and the county's Measure G, a parcel tax for schools, and Arden Arcade's Measure Q, a parcel tax for park security are still slightly below the two-thirds threshold required to pass.

In the Ami Bera - Scott Jones race for Congress, Bera is up 51 percent to 49 percent.
