While all the ballots have been counted, and both the City Council and School Board Elections look settled, Measure VY is still in play, only 3 votes short of a win.
The City Council race will see Dan O’Brien and Freddy Puza as new council members, and Brian Guerrero, Tristan Ezidore and Stephanie Loredo seated as new members of the Culver City Unified School District Governing Board.
Measure BL to change the city’s Business License Tax will pass, with just over 60% of the voter going in favor. But Measure VY has been slowly adding numbers at every ballot count, and is now a bare 49.99% YES to 50.01% NO, only three votes difference.
Ballots are still being ‘cured,’ a process that allows ballots with signature issues to be re-submitted, so there is still a path to victory for the municipal vote for 16 and 17 year olds.
Los Angeles County will certify election results on Dec. 16, 2022.
