Election updates: Measure S is defeated, and Garcetti wins reelection
Officials continue to release results from the March 7 L.A. County election. With most of the votes counted, results show:
- Measure S -- a slow-growth measure that would have imposed a two-year moratorium on developments that require a General Plan amendment, zone change or increase in allowable height -- was defeated.
- Measure H, a county ballot measure that would raise the sales tax a quarter-cent to fund homeless services, is slightly over the 67% it needs to win approval.
- Mayor Eric Garcetti has been reelected.
- Most incumbents were reelected to the City Council, and two Los Angeles Unified School District Board races are going to a runoff.
