While San Mateo County elections officials emphasize there are still "many ballots to count," most local and statewide races in the June 7 primary election show clear trends even before the clerk-recorder updates tallies with mail and dropbox ballots submitted in the days before balloting closed on Tuesday.

With close to 36 percent of the votes, Menlo Park City Councilman Ray Mueller holds a 5 percent lead over San Carlos City Councilwoman Laura Parmer-Lohan in the race to replace Don Horsley as the Coastside representative on the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors. Neither candidate received a majority of votes and the two appeared headed to a runoff in November. The other candidates, Virginia Chang Kiraly and Half Moon Bay resident Steven Booker, trail with 18 and 15 percent, respectively.
