The results reported by the Orange County Registrar of Voters are unofficial until certified by the California Secretary of State.
That said, with 100% of 2,169 precincts reporting, the turnout was 33.6% of 1,817,149 registered voters. Altogether, 611,060 votes were cast. Of that total, the overwhelming number were vote-by-mail ballots: 452,856. That left 158,203 ballots cast at vote centers.
Although the current City Council voted to move to district-based elections, districts are not yet defined and do not feature in this year’s election. Two seats were available, so each La Palma voter could choose two from a list of three candidates:
|Candidate||# Votes||% Vote|
|Janet K. Conklin||1,412||31.05%|
