Angelenos headed to the polls again on Tuesday (we can't get enough of our local elections!), this time with two different L.A. City Council district seats, two L.A. Unified School District board seats, and a police discipline reform measure at stake.

Here's how you can monitor tonight's results as they come in: Because this is a City of Los Angeles election, election results will be monitored by the City Clerk, as opposed to the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk's office, which handled our last few trips to the polls. The City Clerk will start posting results here at about 8:30 p.m.

According to L.A. City Clerk spokesperson Cecilia Reyes, that first 8:30 p.m. update will be primarily composed of vote-by-mail ballots. Reyes told LAist that the second update will likely be posted at 9:30 p.m. After that, the site will be updated in 15-minute intervals.
