If you ever thought your vote didn't really matter, Tuesday's election is another reminder that it does. Or at least, it can.
As of late Thursday, Democratic Attorney General candidate Kamala Harris was leading Republican Steve Cooley by one-tenth of a percentage point.
In the East Bay's 11th Congressional district, incumbent Democrat Jerry McNerney leads Republican challenger David Harmer by just 134 votes -- a virtual tie.
The Secretary of State's office has no idea how many ballots are still to be tallied by counties. Could be tens of thousands, could be a million -- mostly absentee ballots dropped off at polling places on election day. Los Angeles County alone has nearly 400,000 ballots to count.
Local officials have until the end of November to finish counting ... but the State has asked counties to update their numbers by Friday, November 5.
