Trump's Votes in Berkeley & Oakland vs SF?

Many thanks to campaign services worker Catherine at the Alameda County Registrar of Voters, for guiding me to this info in their Statement of the Vote for November's election.

You can read the nearly 1,000-page statement here. City breakdowns are on page 40.

In ultra liberal Berkeley, total number of votes cast was 65,430 and the Trump/Pence ticket received 2,031 ballots. That's 3.10% of the vote.

For the city of Oakland, 182,940 ballots were cast and Trump got 8,470 votes which comes to 4.07% of ballots counted.

Compare Berkeley's 3.10% and Oakland's 4.07% with San Francisco's 9.34% of votes cast for Trump and Pence.

Quite sorry to see my hometown leads in this category among the Bay Area's three more liberal-to-progressive cities.
