Almost 14-thousand votes remain to be tallied from Tuesday's election, according to the L.A. City Clerk's Elections Division. 110,636 total ballots were cast in the election, which included a race for the Los Angeles Community College District, as well as the district 5 race.
Outstanding are about 2,600 provisional ballots, 10,300 votes-by-mail and about 8,500 so-called SNAGs-ballots smeared, torn or in other need of special evaluation--a total of 13,600.
According to the City Clerk, what's not known is how many of these votes were cast in the LAUSD district 5 race pitting Bennett Kayser against Luis Sanchez. 17,436 ballots have currently been counted in that race.
Per law, the City Clerk has 21 days from Tuesday to process the remaining ballots and to conduct a manual recount of one percent of randomly selected ballots. This serves to verify the accuracy of the tabulation equipment used, according to the Clerk's office.
The Clerk's office will be releasing a public timetable of the deadlines later Wednesday.
