According to those results, Pyle leads Hodge by only 35 votes.

By law they are also required to hand count 1 percent of the votes for every race on the ballot.Because the race for Supervisor District 1 is so close, I am going to have the canvass board hand count the entire district.”
Bustamante said she expects the canvass of the election will be completed by Friday, June 7.
