In the race for the California Assembly's 38th District, which includes areas of both LA and Ventura counties, Democratic challenger Christy Smith was the victor over Republican incumbent Dante Acosta.

 

Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk Dean C. Logan announced the certified election results for the Nov. 6 General Election on Friday afternoon.

A total of 3,023,417 ballots were processed and counted, with 58.14 percent of eligible voters casting ballots in LA County.

On Tuesday, Dec. 4, the county Board of Supervisors is scheduled to declare the election officially concluded.

The Official Election Canvass began on Nov. 7. During the canvass period, all outstanding ballots were reviewed and tallied once verified. Learn more about the canvass process on the LA County registrar’s website.

California’s Secretary of State also updated statewide ballot count figures on Friday afternoon.

Here are the latest vote tallies for key races:

Sheriff’s Race
Retired LA County Sheriff’s Lt. Alex Villanueva beat incumbent Sheriff Jim McDonnell, who conceded defeat on Monday, Nov. 26.

After Election Day, as of Wednesday, Nov. 7 at 4:56 a.m. — before any outstanding provisional or mailed-in ballots were counted — Villanueva led by 4,927 votes with all 4,728 county precincts reporting. Villanueva count was 820,333 votes (50.15 percent) to McDonnell’s 815,406 votes (49.85 percent).

In the final tally posted Friday, Villanueva won 1,310,780 votes (52.85 percent) to McDonnell’s 1,169,184 votes (47.15 percent).

The first person to unseat an incumbent sheriff in 104 years, Sheriff-elect Villanueva will be officially sworn in on Monday, Dec. 3.

California 38th Assembly District
In the race for the California Assembly’s 38th district, which includes areas of both LA and Ventura counties, Democratic challenger Christy Smith was the victor over Republican incumbent Dante Acosta.

On Election Night, Acosta lost in LA County by nearly 2 points (50.87-49.13 percent, a 1,591-vote spread) but more than compensated in other parts of the district. Acosta conceded Nov. 14.

In LA County’s final count Friday, Smith had 70,630 votes (53 percent) to Acosta’s 62,644 (47 percent). In Ventura County, the tally stands at 24,843 for Smith (47.56 percent) and 27,396 for Acosta (52.44 percent). The registrar there has another ballot count update scheduled for Monday, Dec. 3.

Smith’s overall lead is 95,473 votes (51.5 percent) to Acosta’s 90,040 (48.5 percent) as of Friday’s update, a margin of 5,433 votes.

U.S. 25th Congressional District
On Election Night, Agua Dulce Democrat Katie Hill won by a 51.26 to 48.74 percent margin (83,662 votes to 79,545 votes) over Republican incumbent Steve Knight of Palmdale.

In the final tally posted Friday afternoon, the vote was 108,355 (55.59 percent) for Hill and 86,562 (44.41 percent) for Knight, who conceded to Hill on Nov. 7.

Santa Clarita City Council
Amid a crowded field, Santa Clarita Mayor Laurene Weste and Mayor Pro-Tem Marsha McLean were reelected to the City Council and incumbent appointee Bill Miranda won the voters’ affirmation.

On Election Night, they were the top three vote-getters — Weste with 18,350, McLean with 18,112 and Miranda with 13,605.

The provisional and mail-in ballot tally followed that trend. As of Friday afternoon, Weste’s total was 25,603 (14.26 percent), McLean’s 25,273 (14.07 percent) and Miranda’s 18,885 (10.52 percent).

California 36th Assembly District
In the Antelope Valley, Republican incumbent Tom Lackey led Democratic challenger Steve Fox 46,235 (55.97 percent) to 36,366 (44.03 percent) on Election Night.

As of Friday afternoon, the vote tally stood at 66,513 for Lackey (52.1 percent) and 61,253 for Fox (47.9 percent).

State Superintendent of Public Instruction
On Election Night, Marshall Tuck had gathered 3,090,707 votes (50.71 percent) to Tony K. Thurmond’s 3,004,259 (49.29 percent).

As of Friday afternoon, though, Thurmond led with 5,239,630 votes (50.9 percent) to Tuck’s 5,062188,197 (49.1 percent).
