With six candidates vying for two seats on Temecula City Council, results released by the Riverside County Registrar of Voters' Office showed incumbents Chuck Washington and Mike Naggar were re-elected.
Washington garnered 35.40 percent of the vote and Naggar captured 32.06 percent of the Temecula vote, with 100 percent of precincts reporting.
The latest updated Riverside County elections results were posted just after 7:30 a.m. Wednesday.
"Election Night vote counting is complete, but results are not final. Information regarding provisional, vote-by-mail, and damaged ballots that require duplication and remain to be counted will be posted shortly," the registrar's office said via its Facebook page.
Results for other contenders were as follows: Patrice Lynes had 10.61 percent of the vote; Jamie White, 9.78 percent; Paul Jacobs, 7.08 percent; and Walter Wilson, 5.08 percent.
When reached by phone late Tuesday, Naggar was humbled by the early race indications.
"It is a clear indication that people are happy with Temecula," Naggar said. "I am really proud and humbled. At the same time, it really makes me want to work harder for the citizens of Temecula and that is what I intend to do."
Naggar went on to say that he has been serving on Temecula City Council for 13 years.
"Chances are if you like Temecula, I had something to do with it. Temecula is only 23 years old...the buck stops at my desk. That is why this is a big validation for me."
