SF election results: 3 new Supervisors elected, Prop. C homeless tax measure passes, more

Around 220,000 voters turned out in San Francisco to vote in yesterday's midterm elections—that's 44 percent of the city's 500,000 or so registered voters, lower than the predicted 47 percent turnout rate for the nation as a whole. 

Nonetheless, SF voters elected three new city Supervisors and kept two incumbents (District 2's Catherine Stefani and District 8's Rafael Mandelman) in office, and passed a hotly contested measure that will levy additional taxes on large businesses to fight homelessness.

Update, 12:59 p.m.: While Rafael Mandelman and Matt Haney have been officially elected as supervisors, the other three supervisor races remain unconcluded due to ranked-choice voting. See more below.
