With Votes Still Being Counted, Cedillo and Bray-Ali Appear Poised For Runoff

Council District 1 election tallies as of press time – screen grab via lavote.net

As SBLA reported last week, the city of Los Angeles Council District One primary election race was too close to call. It remains so today.

It is clear that incumbent councilmember Gil Cedillo placed first, with challenger Joe Bray-Ali second. It is not clear whether Cedillo received enough votes to win outright and avoid a May runoff election against Bray-Ali.

There was good news today for the Bray-Ali campaign as the latest vote tallies show incumbent councilmember Gil Cedillo's percentage slipping.

Late on election night with 100 percent of precincts reporting, Cedillo appeared to be the narrow outright victor with 50.98 percent: 6,702 votes out of 13,147 counted. Today, the County Clerk elections website has updated with new totals shown above. Since election night, 5960 additional CD1 votes have been counted, bringing the overall total from 13,147 to 19,107. As of today, Cedillo is receiving 9,459 votes out of 19,107. This brings his overall percentage to 49.51 percent. From election night tallies Cedillo was 128 votes above 50 percent; he is now 98 votes shy of 50 percent.

Votes are still being counted, but if Cedillo's percentage remains below 50 percent, he will face Bray-Ali in a May 16 runoff.
