Once again, little has changed in the larger scheme of the election.

Current Vice Mayor Robert Garcia has the lead with 25.3% of the vote (9,170) but Independent Damon Dunn is slowly creeping up, having garnered 22.2% of the vote (8,035). Dunn, who has claimed to have knocked individually on thousands of doors across Long Beach, has proved to be the unknown rising candidate. 237 out of 268 precincts have reported for this race.

The fight for City Attorney is looking to have a face-off between two City Hall veterans: Charles Parkin sits at 45.5% (15,704), a healthy lead over James Johnson but not enough to seal the win. Johnson sits at 37.5%, or 12,950 votes.

Doug Haubert is poised to continue his role as City Prosecutor with 74.3% of the vote (29,915)—a long shot from opponent Rosemary Chavez, who sits at 25.7% (8,609).

The Districts are looking to have two runoffs: District 1 will most likely have Lena Gonzalez (45%) face Misi Tagaloa (30.4%) while District 5, home to outgoing Councilmember and mayoral candidate Gerrie Schipske, will likely have Stacy Mungo (37.8%) face Carl Kemp (31.5%).

Roberto Uranga, running for the District 7 seat held by Johnson, has just passed the halfway mark, garnering 50.8% of the vote with 27 of 32 precincts voting.

Uranga could very well join the what could be the two clearest winners in the battle for district seats: Suzie Price of the 3rd keeps growing in numbers with 54.6% of the vote and Rex Richardson has overwhelmingly won the confidence of the 9th with 72.5% of their votes.

The board positions for LBUSD and LBCC have remained unaltered, with three clear possible winners.

LBCC’s Area 1 has Jeffrey Kellog at 55.3% (3,047) with 40 of its 48 precincts reporting; Area 3 has Sunny Zia at 59.7% (2,343) with 39 of its 46 precincts reporting; and Area 5 has Virgina Baxter leading with 55.7% (6,068) with 73 of its 80 precincts reporting.

LBUSD’s two district seats look to have Megan Kerr and John McGinnis fill the vacancies. Volunteer and mother Megan Kerr of District 1 at 51.4% (2,921), while District 3’s John McGinnis sits with 53.4% (2,006).

And medical marijuana smokers will most likely face a fee hike by way of tax: Measure A is steamrolling ahead with 74.2% of voters approving the measure thus far.

12:30AM | 203 of 295 precincts are now reporting. Readers note: 268 of those precincts are Long Beach-specific; the other precincts come from the educational board seats being sought, which have reaches outside of the city limits.

Once again, little has changed in the larger scheme of the election.

The mayoral race still has current Vice Mayor Robert Garcia in the lead with 25.9% of the vote, or 8,072 individual votes. Sitting in second is former NFL player Damon Dunn, who has remained steady but behind Garcia with 21.3%, or 8,072 votes.

The City Attorney seat still has Charles Parkin in the lead at 45% or 13,382 votes. If it continues at the rate it is going, it looks like Parkin is likely to face current 7th District Councilmember James Johnson in a runoff. Johnson currently has 37.8% of the vote (11,227).

Doug Haubert is poising himself to resume his role as City Prosecutor race with 74% of the vote (17,224). His only opponent, Rosemary Chavez, sits a distant 26% (7,499).

The Districts are looking to have two runoffs: District 1 will likely have Lena Gonzalez (44.1%) face Misi Tagaloa (31.5%); District 5 will like have Stacy Mungo (37.8%) face Carl Kemp (31.3%).

District 7 is showing Roberto Uranga as a possible winner: with 21 of 32 precincts reporting, he sits just barely at the winning mark with 49.9% of the vote (1,888). His nearest opponent, Joan Greenwood, holds 24.8% of the vote.

The two most possible clear winners are Suzie Price of the 3rd with 52.9% of the vote and Rex Richardson, dominating the 9th with 72.1% of the vote.
