The race for San Francisco District Attorney has tightened up.

The Department of Election's latest numbers show Suzy Loftus' previous 2,200 vote lead over Chesa Boudin is now down to 879.

In the District 5 Supervisor’s race, Dean Preston now leads incumbent Vallie Brown, but only by 35 votes.

In the meantime, Proposition D -- which would impose a tax on Uber and Lyft rides in San Francisco -- is still too close to call. It currently has 67.31 percent of the vote. It needs a two-thirds majority to pass.

Election officials are still counting ballots, as there are about 38,000 still outstanding. They include 25,000 vote-by-mail ballots and 13,000 provisional and conditional voter registration ballots.

The Department of Election will release their next report on Friday, November 8 at 4:00 p.m.
