It's better news than yesterday's estimate of 100,000 votes not to be counted. In a LA Times article today, acting County Registrar, Dean Logan, was very honest and straightforward about the situation that took place last Tuesday: "We want voters to know that we hear loud and clear that this ballot layout is confusing and we need to identify a less confusing method for crossover voting for future primaries," he told the Times.

The lost votes are said to be too few within the margin to affect the outcome of the Democratic primary. According to LAist's Super Tuesday Map, 658,937 (55%) votes went to Hillary and 496,192 (41%) went to Obama.
