Since I’ve been asked many times tonight already “is there any news?” … I thought I would give you an update.
There are hundreds of you on my list already, but if you are receiving this note on a “forward”, drop me a line a note and I’ll add you to the list to receive it directly in a more timely manner.
As of right now, Tue night 10:35pm, only absentee ballots received before election day have been counted (and I don’t know if all of them have been counted).
Yes: 477 (48%)
No: 517 (52%)
44% of the state was expected to vote absentee today. The way that absentee ballots work is that they must RECEIVE the ballot on or by election day. Those that mail in advance are the ones that are counted above.
Those that are received election day in the mail, or at the polls, are counted separately.
As of right now, the vast majority of LA County’s precincts have not yet reported.
Given how close this race is expected to be, we may not know for days.
