CALIFORNIA BRIEFING / L.A. COUNTY

Measure R's lead increases slightly

November 12, 2008|Steve Hymon

The lead increased slightly Tuesday for the countywide half-cent transportation sales tax hike known as Measure R, as the Los Angeles County registrar's office posted more unofficial results from the Nov. 4 election.

Measure R has 67.23% of the vote and needs two-thirds to pass.

The registrar's office did not say Tuesday how many votes are left to be counted, but Measure R proponents say that at this point the results of those ballots will have to be markedly different from the nearly 2.69 million ballots tallied for Measure R to lose.
