12 p.m. Wednesday:The Daily Press is still waiting to hear how many absentee and provisional ballots were cast at polling places last night.

1:30 FS widens further.

1:08 Measure FS widens a small lead. Not looking good for Measure D. Measure LC is looking strong.

12:50 Big update at last. We’re halfway there. Measure FS has gained a slight lead. Measure H made up ground but is still a long way out. Measure D slips again.

11:50 A fifth of the way there. Measure D continues decline. FS loses ground. Not looking good for H.

11:30 Another four precincts in. Measure FS, which would force landlords to pay half of the rent control fee, is so close. Measure D continues to fall. LC continues to gain.

11:05 Finally, three precincts report. Measure D loses a little more ground. Measure LC makes a small gain. Measure H still struggling but made a small gain. Night is still young.

10:20 We’re still waiting for more results. Nothing new since 8:10.
