vote 640 360

If you voted in Tuesday’s Los Angeles County election, you likely didn’t have to fight any crowds at the polling place.

As of 5 p.m., an estimated 9.16 percent of voters had cast ballots in the countywide election, according to the county registrar’s office. The estimate is based on a random sampling of 30 polling places.

Los Angeles County Registrar/Recorder-County Clerk Dean Logan told KNX Newsradio late Tuesday afternoon that at the current pace, turnout would likely wind up at about 12 percent after polls close at 8 p.m. and vote-by-mail ballots are tallied.

The election includes a proposed quarter-cent sales tax to combat homelessness and an array of local races, including a re-election effort by Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti.
