The above data shows the following vote count:
Mayor votes - 22,494
Council votes - 38,520
PUSD votes - 51,705

Should we expect that there will be another 20,000 votes that have not been counted for the mayor race?

No. For the council and school board, you voted for more than one person (council was 2, school board was 3). Mayor is a one person vote.

OK, I get it.

Any idea, how many votes remain to be counted?

No. When I ran in 2016, the county indicated there would be updates, usually each day, at 5:00 p.m. until all the votes were counted. Problem is/was that they are counting the whole county and Pleasanton’s votes are a drop in the bucket compared with Oakland. Shifts were small.
