Incumbent Eric Mar led challenger David Lee in the District 1 Board of Supervisors election and F.X. Crowley held a slim lead over Norman Yee in Distrct 7, according to results released late Tuesday night by San Francisco elections officials.

The Department of Elections posted general results at 10:23 p.m. and detailed results of District 7 at 11:12 p.m. Those results showed Mar apparently fighting off Lee for another term representing the Richmond District, while in District 7 Crowley flipped an earlier lead by Yee to stand at 50.95 percent to 49.05 percent after six rounds of ranked-choice-voting calculation.
