County election officials expect to update the results of Tuesday's election this afternoon and there are a few city races worth monitoring.
The closest race in the city - and maybe anywhere - is in City Council District 4, where just 28 votes separate biotech firm manager Steve Hansen and architect Joe Yee. That slim margin exists even after more than 16,000 ballots have been tallied in Land Park, the Central City and the River Oaks section of South Natomas.
In north Sacramento, 63 votes is the difference between Rob Kerth and Allen Warren. Kerth seems pretty confident in the final result, telling people on Facebook this week that it "looks good" and saying, "What a wonderful feeling it is to know that about half the people of North Sacramento have decided that I am the person to lead our community forward."
With as many as 4,000 votes left to be tallied in that district, however, it's still too close to call.
Another close race is Measure T, the proposal to allow the city to require green waste bins and scale back regular leaf collection by the Claw. In an early result that has surprised some observers, the measure is passing by a 51 percent to 49 percent margin. Given that the Measure T election is citywide, there could be tens of thousands of ballots left to count in that race.
Check back after 3 p.m., when we hope to have updated results.
