More ballots from last Tuesday’s primary are being counted in San Luis Obispo County this week.

The San Luis Obispo County Clerk-Recorder’s Office expects new numbers to be available by the close of business Monday. 

While there are still thousands of ballots yet to be counted, many races have, for the most part, already been decided – except one.

Friday, there were only 31 votes separating San Luis Obispo County District 4 Supervisor candidates Lynn Compton and Jimmy Paulding. 

Compton, the incumbent, had 7,982 votes to challenger Paulding’s 7,951 votes.

Of the ballots remaining, at least 2,500 at the end of last week were from District 4.

Stay with and watch KSBY News at 5 and 6 p.m. for updates on this race as they become available.
