Update: NLMUSD Board V.P. in danger of losing re-election bid

In the race for the third open seat on the Norwalk La Mirada Unified School District board, Vice President Jesse Urquidi has seen his lead on election night of 1.04% disappear and now trails Challenger Jose Rios by four votes.

The updated results released late Tuesday show newcomer Christopher Staples, and incumbent Karen Morrison both from La Mirada continue to hold safe leads for two of the three open seats on the board.

Rios, a realtor from Norwalk had trailed Urquidi by 622 votes on election night now is in a good position to pull an upset but it may take a while to get a final tally.

Votes are still being tallied daily during a 30-day period after Election Day known as canvassing.

It is during this period where election officials will tally vote-by-mail ballots received on or after Election Day that were postmarked honor or before November 3rd, provisional, damaged and writing ballots.

Officials will then do an audit by pulling a certain amount of ballots to ensure the original count was accurate then certify the results.

The next results update is due to be released late afternoon on Friday.

KAREN MORRISON (N)20,88225.18%
