The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday finalized results of the Nov. 4 mid-term election, with just over 1.5 million ballots cast by 33.4 percent of registered voters.
About one-third of the votes cast were contained in vote-by-mail ballots, according to numbers certified by Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk Dean Logan.
Though higher than estimates reported immediately following the election, the turnout represents a historic county low for a general election. The previous record low of 45 percent turnout was set in 2002.
