San Luis Obispo County is inch­ing closer to a fi­nal­ized vote tally.

County Clerk-Recorder Tommy Gong re­leased up­dated num­bers Fri­day evening that showed most lo­cal races stay­ing the same from elec­tion night counts.

Here are the lat­est num­bers for some of those close races:

Ar­royo Grande: Coun­cilA woman Caren Ray still leads Mayor Jim Hill, with 52.8 per­cent of the 5,057 votes cast. The two are sep­a­rated by 391 votes.

Morro Bay: May­oral can­diA date John Headding slightly widened his lead over John Weiss; as of the lat­est count, he was ahead by 188 votes. Jeff Heller led Betty Win­holtz in the race for City Coun­cil by only 42 votes. Coun­cil can­di­date Dawn Ad­dis had the high­est per­cent­age of the vote, with 29.6 per­cent as of Fri­day.

Cam­bria: For Com­mu­nity A Ser­vices District Di­rec­tor, Donn How­ell and Aaron Wharton were sep­a­rated by only 99 votes on Fri­day for one of two seats on the board. Cindy Stei­del was the high­est vote get­ter with 31.6 per­cent of the vote.

San Miguel: Only 20 votes A sep­a­rate Hec­tor Palafox and Ce­sar Her­nan­dez for the sec­ond of two seats of the CSD board, with Palafox lead­ing. Ash­ley Sang­ster is the high­est vote get­ter for that race with 36.9 per­cent of the 681 votes cast.

San Luis Coastal Uni­fied A School District: Mar­i­lyn Rodger is the top vote get­ter for the school board, with 30.1 per­cent of the vote, but Jim Que­sen­berry and Eve­lyn Frame were run­ning neck-and-neck for the sec­ond seat on the board, with 27.5 per­cent and 27.1 per­cent of the vote, re­spec­tively. That’s a dif­fer­ence of 187 votes.

Gong on Wed­nes­day es­ti­mated there were roughly 50,000 un­counted bal­lots fol­low­ing elec­tion night. The wait for a fi­nal tally is largely due to the in­flux of vote-by-mail bal­lots, some of which were still ar­riv­ing at the Clerk-Recorder’s of­fice on Fri­day.

Fri­day’s to­tals show a re­main­ing 34,244 bal­lots left to be counted.

Gong’s next vote count is ex­pected to take place Tues­day.
