More than 549,000 mail ballots already have been returned to Los Angeles County elections officials. That's more than 10% of the county's registered voters, officials said Thursday.

Democratic ballots -- 277,741 -- made up the largest number of those returned by  2:30 p.m., the L.A. County registrar-recorder's office said. Republicans had returned 162,788 of the ballots, and voters without a party preference accounted for another 71,426.

Ballots cannot be counted until the polls close on election day, Nov. 6.

Mail voters who wish to see whether the county has received their ballots may do so  by signing on to lavote.net and  clicking on the "vote by mail status" button.
