I read it but don't understand it
Is she in a runoff in a primary or is Cassidy? It almost sounds like they are in a runoff against each other.
I never did understand LA politics (does anyone?) but don't really understand why there is going to be an election in December.
has an open ballot where anybody can have their name on it (this year there were nine with two main contenders....her and Cassidy). The requirement is that the winner has to get a minimum of 50%. With that many names on the ballot, those two only got 42% and 41% I think so those two are in another runoff that will happen Dec. 6.
That is weird
If they got the top two spots and they are in different parties, why is there a runoff? The one with the most votes wins the seat or do they now go through a regular election?
Because they have an open
election where anybody can put their names into that hat called a ballot, the winner has to get at least 50% to win; otherwise the two top winners have a runoff a month later.
What if the top two are both in the same party?
I imagine one would drop out
but I believe the way it works there is the separate parties have one in each as the winners of the run off.
