As a mayoral candidate and longtime election activist, I and many others have chartered the recent elections results and have realized Huge discrepancies. First, formerly known as Master Bates did not get 54% of the vote to cancel out the Rank choice voting which is a good step for fair elections which the next step would be Fair campaign donations. Besides Bates losing the mayor's race his counter part Laurie Capatelli lost to Sophie Hahn in their council race. In other propositions both Measures U and V both won but were altered by the Sequoya counting machines which happened to be programmed and guarded by UC Berkeley. When we challenged the results with putting up the 25,000 it all of sudden cost jumped to 100,000 to recount which there should be no cost. On the state level one can go only as far as Proposition 37 (GMO labelling) with 92% of Californians wanting labelled the powers at be faked a Monsanto 42 million dollar ad campaign to swing the polls in the final three weeks, Ridiculous.
