LA District Attorney: What We Know So Far
(Last updated 5:59 a.m. Wednesday)
Keep in mind that even after all precincts have been counted, there will still be ballots to count. In some cases, it could be weeks before the official outcome is clear.
ABOUT THIS RACE
Voters in Los Angeles County are deciding whether to give District Attorney Jackie Lacey a third term or to replace her with one of her reformist challengers, George Gascon or Rachel Rossi.
Gascon and Rossi have portrayed Lacey as a traditional tough-on-crime prosecutor who is too resistant to modern reforms. Lacey has insisted she’s a “reasonable reformer” committed to diverting people with mental health problems away from jail while championing crime victims.
The race has attracted national attention; a progressive tide has swept reformists into office in DA races across the country, and L.A. County -- home to the largest prosecutor’s office in the U.S. -- is the biggest prize so far.
YOU SHOULD KNOW:
- This is a top two race, meaning if no candidate receives an outright majority of the vote, the top two advance to a November runoff.
