Posted at 4:51 PM, Jun 15, 2018

The latest ballot results from the San Luis Obispo County Clerk-Recorder’s Office show District 4 Supervisor candidates Lynn Compton and Jimmy Paulding separated by just 62 votes.

The incumbent, Compton, has 9,175 votes to Paulding’s 9,113 votes. 

The last update on Monday showed a separation of 81 votes.

The two have been separated by less than 100 votes since the Primary Election on June 5 and there are still some ballots left to be counted; however, Compton has filed paperwork for a temporary restraining order that would stop the counting of signature-corrected ballots.

The 4th District Supervisor seat serves Huasna, Cuyama, Arroyo Grande, Nipomo, Oceano, and Edna Valley.
