This could be the turning point for Measure B and a few other close races. The City Clerks office has 21 days by election code to announce the official results, but they could be announced earlier, one representative said over the phone. Here's what's left to count:

  • 12,000 provisional ballots
  • 24,000 vote-by-mail
  • 10,000 "snag" ballots (those are the ones they have to look more carefully at, either something went wrong or the dot wasn't filled all the way in, etc).
  • Total ballots waiting to be counted: 46,000
  • Updated total ballots casted: 305,846 out of 1,977,237 registered voters. That's 15.46% voter turnout

Keep in mind that 381,067 voters in the aforementioned registered voters total are not within the city of Los Angeles. Those extra voters are counted because the LAUSD and and community college district lines go beyond city limits. It is unknown at this moment how many of the uncounted ballots are within and outside the city.
