Election Results Are Still Rolling In. Here’s The Latest.
* These results will be continually updated as votes are counted. Last updated on Tuesday, Nov. 10 at 5:20 p.m.
Los Angeles County and state officials updated election returns on Tuesday afternoon, providing a clearer look at the voter turnout and several key races.
Tuesday evening, the Associated Press reported that Prop 15, the so-called "split roll" tax measure, has failed. The latest figures show the "no" vote currently leading by a 51.7% to 48.3% margin.
Today’s batch of ballots, which included an update from Ventura County, pushed Republican Mike Garcia into a slim lead in California’s 25 Congressional District.
The results also cement strong performances by progressive candidates and causes, including in the Los Angeles District Attorney race, a closely watched city council contest, and Measure J.
With the current results, L.A. County has notched 74% voter turnout — a figure that should rise slightly in the coming days and which exceeds 2016’s mark of 67% turnout. The county has recorded more than 4.2 million votes.
The L.A. County Registrar-Recorder plans to release an estimate of ballots remaining to be processed on Tuesday night, which could number more than 100,000.
Across the state, 2.1 million ballots have not yet been processed, according to a report from the Secretary of State on Tuesday.
Election results could still change in the coming days. In District 25 in Northern L.A. County and a small slice of Ventura County, Republican Mike Garcia leads Democrat Christy Smith by only 159 votes out of more than 330,000 votes cast.
One congressional races in Orange County remains close. With today’s results in Orange, Los Angeles and San Bernardino counties, Republican challenger Young Kim is outpacing incumbent Democrat Gil Cisneros by 4,160 votes in the 39th District. That’s a slight increase since yesterday.
In the 48th District, Democratic incumbent Harley Rouda conceded on Tuesday to Republican Michelle Steel, retaking a seat Democrats flipped as part of 2018’s “blue wave.”
Across Orange County, more than 1.5 million ballots have been cast, representing an 86% voter turnout. In Riverside County, more than 622,000 ballots have been counted, although nearly 240,000 still need to be processed.
Election experts were stunned by the levels of early voting in California and across the country, and hopes were high that 2020 will be an election with high turnout. However, the precise voter turnout in California may not be known until after Thanksgiving. By law, county election officials have 31 days to report results.
Vote-by-mail ballots will be accepted by county registrars until 17 days after the election, as long as they were postmarked no later than Nov. 3.
