Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls.

More preliminary results from yesterday's Statewide Direct Primary include the failure of three propositions and one local measure.

  • Prop 15, California Fair Elections Act: 57.5% NO, 42.5% YES. Would have repealed ban on public funding of political campaigns.
  • Prop 16, Local Electricity Providers: 52.5% NO, 47.5% YES. Would have imposed a new two-thirds voter approval requirement for local public electricity providers.
  • Prop 17, Auto Insurance Pricing: 52.1% NO, 47.9% YES. Would have allowed auto insurance companies to base their prices in part on a driver's history of insurance coverage.
  • Measure E: 47.05% NO, 52.95% YES. This would have added $100 per parcel in property owners' taxes in order to generate funds to support multiple LAUSD teachers and programs.
