Luis Marquez leads Michael Murray by only 18 votes and there are still more votes to be counted, according to updated election results released by the L.A. County Registrar-Recorder's office today.
With all precincts reporting, Marquez had seemingly won the election last week by 96 votes but county officials later announced that provisional ballots had yet to be processed.
"There are many ballots remaining to be counted," registrar officials said. "Vote by Mail ballots go through signature verification and are cross-checked with precinct rosters. Provisional ballots are sorted by category, verified for voter eligibility and then signature checked."
Another ballot update is expected to be released Friday.
