County Assessor Race "Too Close To Call"

In the race to replace disgraced County Assessor John Noguez, votes cast for Head Deputy District Attorney John Morris have closed the gap to career politician flimflam man Jeffrey Prang.

When the first round of ballots were counted, Prang appeared to have a 2 point lead over Morris, however, as the night progressed that gap closed leaving Morris 1 point behind Prang.

Wednesday afternoon Morris posted this message to supporters on his FaceBook page:

LA County Registrar-Recorder, Dean C. Logan, released a statement Wednesday evening, confirming that 244,747 ballots remain to be counted. There are 114,229 Provisional Ballots, 119,862 Vote By Mail Ballots received at the Polls, and 10,656 Election Day Vote By Mail Ballots received via USPS that will need to be validated before they can be counted.

If the trend towards Morris continues amongst the remaining ballots, Morris could be elected as County Assessor, a possibility that Prang acknowledge, posting this message on his FaceBook page "I am not prepared at this time to declare victory because the democratic process is not finished.There are still ballots to be counted and I want to let that important process run its course." he said.

The results of final tally will be updated on the Registrar-Recorder's website.
