Few LA Precincts Reporting: Prop 98 Losing, Prop 99 Ahead

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

With 1% (59) of Los Angeles County precincts reporting, Proposition 98 was losing and Proposition 99 was winning within the county.

Statewide (where it ultimately counts), Secretary of State Debra Bowen's website was reporting similar outcomes (and margins) for the propositions with 5.9% precincts reporting as of an 8:17 p.m. update.
