Whitman, Dambacher head to Nov.

Chris Caskey, The Union Democrat /

Tuolumne County Elections Office staff Thursday counted most of the 2,200 remaining absentee ballots from Tuesday's primary, clarifying who will move to the November Assessor-Recorder runoff while leaving the super-tight Sonora City Council race unresolved.

Thursday's counting showed Assessor-Recorder candidate Michael Dambacher received the most votes and will face candidate Kaenan Whitman. Dambacher had gotten 4,292, or 39 percent, of the votes and Whitman had 3,481, or 31.65 percent.

Candidate Cindy Deutsch received 3,207 votes, or 29.15 percent.

Dambacher would have needed more than 50 percent of the vote to win outright.

"I'm definitely just grateful and humbled to receive the support I have," Whitman said Thursday. "I'm definitely excited."

Deutsch thanked supporters, committee members, family, friends and her husband for their "support and encouragement" through the campaign.

"I could never have done it without (them)," she said in an email. "I wish Kaenan and Mike the best as they continue."

The Assessor's race could be called as only 190 provisions ballots remained uncounted at the end of the day Thursday.
