La Mirada~Wow, talk about suspense.

Two candidates will have to wait until tomorrow to see who captures the final seat for the La Mirada City Council.

There are 323 provisional ballots that still need to be counted. The will be counted tomorrow at City Hall around 3 p.m.

153 of them are vote-by-mail ballots that were dropped off at precincts instead of being mailed-they are still valid. The remaining are also still valid but were not originally counted because of technicalities, but again, are still legitimate.

Pauline Deal has easily captured first place with 1,693 votes so far.

The second and final spot is too close to call and is up for grabs with Steve Keithly receiving 1,300 votes to Andrew Sarega’s 1,291. Keithly, trailing Sarega most of the night, by less than 100 votes surged in the last few precincts announced to overcome Sarega.

A broken ballot-counting machine delayed the vote.

More coming.
