LOS ANGELES (CNS) – Los Angeles County’s first post-election results update will be released Friday with at least 400,000 vote by mail ballots still to be processed, Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk Dean C. Logan said.
Logan provided the estimate Wednesday, adding that the number of outstanding vote by mail ballots will increase as the registrar’s office continues to accept ballots that were postmarked by Election Day and received through June 14.
The opponent for Sen. Sydney Kamlager in the Nov. 8 general election in the 37th Congressional District is undecided with former Los Angeles City Councilwoman Jan Perry holding a 1,085-vote lead over Culver City Mayor Daniel W. Lee. All three candidates are Democrats.
