Election results starting to roll in

City Hall had tabulated absentees only until about 10:30, but now some votes cast today are starting to come in. Bernard Parks is the only incumbent City Council member anywhere close to falling short of the magic 50 percent-plus-one level at this stage, and even he's over 53 percent. The school board and community college incumbents are well ahead. Things could shift, but there's not a lot of votes out there.

On Los Angeles ballot measures, only Measure O — the oil extraction tax — was losing.

In the city of Bell, the recall questions are running at, oh, about 95 percent yes. Do I hear unanimous consent? Noted: The Registrar-Recorder says 29.76% voter turnout in Bell.
