This morning’s Los Angeles Times informs us that “preliminary numbers show that voter turnout in Tuesday’s Los Angeles city election was 8.6%”
Follow up. Today’s L.A. Times (front page, above the fold) makes it official: the voter turnout was indeed 8.6%. One of the council persons who ran successfully received 4.6% of the votes in his district. See Emily Alpert Reyes, Alica Walton and Peter Jamison, The Power of the Few, L.A. Times, March 5, 2015, p.
