On March 26, the Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk’s office will finalize the March 5 election results, signaling the end for certain local races while setting the stage for November runoffs in others.

Mike Sanchez of the RR/CC mentioned that there won’t be a press event, but an announcement is expected to confirm the election outcomes by mid-afternoon.

In Los Angeles County, three Board of Supervisors seats were contested. Holly Mitchell, Janice Hahn, and Kathryn Barger, representing the 2nd, 4th, and 5th districts, each secured over 50% of the primary vote, thus avoiding a November runoff.

Mitchell secured 68.45% of the vote, ensuring her continuation in District 2, a diverse area spanning multiple communities. Hahn garnered 57.80% of the votes, marking the start of her final term representing District 4, which includes over 50 communities. Similarly, Barger won her third term in District 5 with 56.81% of the vote, covering a vast area of over 90 communities.

The positions on the Board of Supervisors, though nonpartisan, play a crucial role in governing a county home to roughly 10 million people. It has been 44 years since a sitting county supervisor lost a reelection bid, underscoring the strength of incumbency in these roles.

Three city council races in Los Angeles are heading to a November runoff. Ysabel Jurado and incumbent Kevin de León will vie for the 14th District, which covers particular parts of Los Angeles, including Boyle Heights and Downtown.
