The polls have now closed in Los Angeles County, where voters cast ballots to fill dozens of local, state and national offices -- from governor to Congress to county supervisor -- in mostly primary elections that will set the stage for runoffs in November.

More than 4.8 million registered county voters were eligible to cast ballots, but the actual number is expected to be much smaller. In the 2012 primary, which included a presidential election, just under 22% of the county's 4.4 million registered voters cast ballots; in the 2010 primary, turnout was about 23%. It usually takes election officials a day or two after an election to calculate a firm turnout.
Voters were asked to decide some key local races: At the county level, where newly activated term limits are beginning to kick in on the Board of Supervisors, two seats were up for grabs. Longtime Supervisors Zev Yaroslavsky -- representing the Westside and much of the San Fernando Valley and Gloria Molina -- representing downtown and the county's eastern reaches -- are both being forced out this year.
Eight candidates vied to replace Yaroslavsky, including former state lawmaker and child actress Sheila Kuehl, Kennedy family scion and former Santa Monica City Councilman Bobby Shriver, and longtime West Hollywood City Councilman John Duran. Kuehl and Shriver have a substantial lead in fundraising, but Duran has garnered some high-profile endorsements, including from The Times, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, and supervisor Molina. The top two vote-getters will advance to November's general election.
The race to replace Molina could be decided once Tuesday's voting is final. Three candidates are running to replace her: former U.S. Labor Secretary Hilda Solis, El Monte City Councilman Juventino "J" Gomez and school police Officer April Saucedo Hood. But Solis' name-recognition and substantial support from labor groups and the local political establishment have led experts to predict she will win outright.
Voters also cast ballots for a new sheriff and county assessor, in hotly contested races to replace incumbents who stepped down under a cloud. Sheriff Lee Baca retired in January amid a federal investigation of his department, and Assessor John Noguez is fighting corruption charges. Seven candidates vied to replace Baca and 12 to replace Noguez.
