The San Francisco Board of Elections has posted the ranked choice voting results for Districts Four and Six (Districts Two, Eight, and 10 had clear majority leaders, thus going to RCV was unnecessary).


And the leaders? In District Four, Ed Jew. Charlie Goodyear reports:

Jew secured a 52 percent majority, capturing 7670 votes out of a total of 14716 eligible ballots in San Francisco's District Four after the results of the city's ranked-choice voting were announced. Although Jew had been trailing behind businessman Ron Dudum, he surged into the lead thanks to hundreds voters who listed him as their second choice on ballots cast for third and fourth-place finishers Jaynry Mak and Doug Chan.


In District Six, incumbent Supervisor Chris Daly retained his seat, with just over 50% of the vote.
