As of Friday June 8, election results show just a few dozen votes separate the two candidates for San Luis Obispo County Supervisor District 4.
Incumbent Lynn Compton is ahead of challenger Jimmy Paulding by just 31 votes. It’s been a close race and there are still more ballots to count.
Paulding released this statement to KSBY: "I’m happy to see the gap close, and the numbers trend in my direction. We remain optimistic that the numbers will continue on this direction."
We reached out to Compton but did not hear back.
Ballot counting will resume June 11, at 10 a.m.
