65 candidates over five neighborhood councils can breathe a sigh of relief--now that the five day waiting period after voting on Saturday has ended.
The results in the Atwater Village, Elysian Valley Riverside, Greater Griffith Park, Rampart Village and Silver Lake are officially certified.
The Department of Neighborhood Empowerment, which oversees the neighborhood councils and their elections, officially posted the results on its site late Thursday.
(See copies in the galleries above.)
But, as of Friday morning, the results for the Greater Echo Park Elysian Neighborhood Council remained preliminary, due to an audit.
The two candidates for president are separated by two votes and many had expected a recount under those circumstances.
And they got it, though the final canvas could be posted as early as Friday, according to election coordinators.
The Eastsider reported Thurday night that the tied race between Joe Malone and Maidel Luevano in for a Region 3 seat on the Silver Lake Neighborhood Council was decided by drawing straws.
Luevano drew the shorter one to win Thursday night at Van Nuys City Hall.
See the final canvass for all races--except Greater Echo Park Elysian--in the gallery above.

How to run for Neighborhood Council
