Candidates in these tight Sacramento-area races will attest - Every Vote Matters!

As Sacramento County voters patiently await voting results, several Sacramento County area candidates are on pins and needles. While several area candidates are in tight races separated by thousands or hundreds of votes, some are separated by even smaller margins. 

Among those tight races are on the Citrus Heights and Folsom city councils. In both cities, incumbents are in extremely close races.

In the Citrus Heights District 5 City Council race, incumbent Porsche Middleton is leading her challenger Natalee Price by nine votes. Middleton has 1,212 votes to Price's 1,203. 

Incumbent Kerri Howell in Folsom City Council District 5 is behind challenger Anna Rohrbough by 29 votes. Howell has 1,618 votes to Rohrboguh's 1,647. 

Another incumbent lagging by just a few votes is Galt City Councilmember Rich Lozano. In the Galt at-large election for three council members, Lozano is in fourth place by five votes with 1,559 votes to the current third-place candidate, challenger Tim Silva. 

Among other incumbents in close races is Sacramento City Unified School District Area 6 Trustee Darrell Woo who is ahead of his opponent Taylor Kayatta by 39 votes. Woo has 4,613, and Kayatta has 4,574 votes. 

In all likelihood, these races will probably end up very close, and regardless of who prevails, all candidates will undoubtedly agree that every vote matters.
