Experts estimate that, after all the ballots are counted, California will experience a historical turnout like the rest of the nation. The Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder noted that 20.6 percent of eligible voters cast ballots. That number does not include late ballots, which must be received today, March 6, in order to be valid.
Here are some preliminary local elections results:
- District Attorney Jackie Lacey is currently winning and avoiding a runoff
- Council Member Herb Wesson and State Senator Holly Mitchell look to be going into a runoff
- Supervisor Janice Hahn and Supervisor Kathryn Barger seem to be winning their seats
- Council Member David Ryu looks to be going into a runoff with Nithya Raman
- Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas looks to be going into a runoff with Grace Yoo
- Council Member John Lee looks like the likely winner for the Los Angeles City Council, 12th District
- Kevin de Leon looks to be winning outright and avoiding a runoff for the Los Angeles City Council, 14th District
- The L.A. County Fire Measure looks to be failing to get the two-thirds needed to pass
Also, California Proposition 13, the School and College Facilities Bond, looks to have failed to gain passage, only getting 44.14 percent statewide.
