Editor’s note: These results are unofficial and many ballots are yet to be counted. We’re expecting another update from the county elections office Friday.

Despite a concerted effort to stop the recall of Santa Cruz City Council members Chris Krohn and Drew Glover, the pair seemed to be ousted from the council in Tuesday’s election, according to unofficial results from the county. The results (which have all precincts reporting but do not include many vote-by-mail and same-day registration ballots) show that Krohn and Glover will be replaced by 87-year-old former mayor Katherine Beiers and elementary school educator Renee Golder. In the Santa Cruz County Supervisor District 1 race, incumbent John Leopold will face a November runoff against challenger Manu Koenig. Santa Cruz Local hosts Kara Meyberg Guzman and Stephen Baxter talk about these and more county election results.
