City Clerk Releases DLANC Election Results

By Eric Richardson
Published: Thursday, June 19, 2008, at 03:51PM

The City Clerk this afternoon released the results of last week's Downtown Los Angeles Neighborhood Council (DLANC) election. Sixty candidates were running for 28 seats on the council's Board of Directors, and a record number of people turned out to vote.

Today's official results don't differ significantly from preliminary results released last week, but late counts resolved one tied seat. One other seat (Resident Director - South Park) remains tied, meaning that the Board representative will be chosen by a coin flip with the two candidates present.

While today's numbers represent the votes counted, there is still an opportunity for results to be challenged. That process should be resolved in time to swear in the new board at DLANC's July Board of Directors meeting.

Today's published results, with winners in bold. Number of votes received is in parentheses.
