L.A. County expects to finish vote count Sunday
Officials in California's most populous county found themselves with nearly 800,000 ballots that couldn't be counted on election day and have been working seven days a week (including Thankgsgiving) to get the job done. The county Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk's office in Norwalk has been updating vote totals every few days.
On Friday, election officials tallied an additional 45,642 ballots. Results for offices and ballot measures can be found at lavote.net.
In one especially close race, for an Assembly seat that spans three counties, attorney Steve Fox, a Democrat, on Friday pulled closer to Lancaster City Councilman Ron Smith, a Republican.
Smith now leads Fox by just 273 votes in the GOP-leaning 36th Assembly District. Results in that race can be found at sos.ca.gov.
