Preliminary Results 2013

This page shows the preliminary results from the LA Votes for Mayor Study of the Los Angeles General Municipal Election on May 21, 2013.

Data for this study was provided by two surveys: a telephone survey of vote-by-mail voters and an exit poll survey on Election Day.

The vote-by-mail telephone survey was implemented a week before the election.

The exit poll survey was implemented on May 21, 2013, during the Los Angeles General Municipal Election, on 25 randomly selected precincts across the City of Los Angeles. Student volunteers collected surveys from 7 am until polls closed at 8 pm.

Data entry of exit poll surveys was ongoing throughout Election Day. Student volunteers entered data until the wee hours of the morning.

Data processing is still being completed.

Final results will be posted as soon as they become available late this afternoon/early evening.
