Were you up late last night waiting for the final word on some election results for California or L.A. County ballot measures? Or did you give up before Mitt Romney did and head to bed? Either way, though the results will not be officially certified for a few weeks by the California Secretary of State, with 100% of precincts reporting, we have the election results for many state and local contests.

It was an easy win for incumbent Senator Dianne Feinstein (D), and similar steady wins for other incumbent congressional reps. L.A. City Councilman Tony Cardenas took the win for U.S. Rep (29th), and in the often-tense battle of dueling Dems Howard Berman and Brad Sherman in the 30th, it was Sherman who emerged victorious.

For Propositions, Californians said no to labeling Genetically Modified foods (though L.A. County voters favored the prop), yes to Prop 30 to raise the sales tax to benefit schools, and no to eradicating the Death Penalty.

In L.A. County, voters said they'd prefer to keep electing their assessor, they want porn stars to wear condoms, and not enough people wanted to extend the tax that benefits transit.
