Nithya Raman Leads CD4 Race over David Ryu

Ryu and Raman campaign volunteers greeted voters at the La Brea Tarpits Vote Center on election day, where poll workers estimate nearly 1,000 ballots were cast or collected.

While the results are not yet final, as of 2:30 a.m. today, the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk’s office reported that Nithya Raman is leading by 52.38% to 47.62% over incumbent Councilmember David Ryu in the 4th District City Council race.

And Mike Sanchez, spokesperson Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk (RR/CC) told the Buzz this morning that more votes remain to be counted.

“We are currently beginning the process of determining the number of ballots that are outstanding in the county,” said Sanchez, who also said the next update on the vote count is expected later this afternoon. Vote by Mail ballots that were postmarked by election day and received by RR/CC within 17 days will be accepted. The county has 30 days to certify the results of the election.

The Ryu campaign told the Buzz that it will issue a statement on the race later today. The Raman campaign has not yet responded to Buzz inquiries. We will keep you posted on the developments as we hear them.
