Election 2022: Here are updated results for LA County congressional districts

It may be a while before we know how every congressional race that touches Los Angeles County shook out — but some races began to crystallize during the early hours Wednesday, Nov. 9.

Voters in 17 congressional districts that at least partially touch LA County headed to the polls on Tuesday, Nov. 8, for the 2022 statewide general election.

For districts entirely within LA County, the registrar’s office released the semi-official results shortly before 4 a.m. Wednesday. The county registrar will next update the results of Friday, Nov. 11.

But things aren’t that simple for House districts that comprise multiple counties. While LA and Ventura counties, for example, have posted semi-official results — and the latter won’t update races again until Thursday — San Bernardino County was set to release another update at 8 a.m. Wednesday.

So keep that in mind as you check out the below roundup of LA County congressional races.

The results come from the Secretary of State’s website, as of 6:05 a.m. Wednesday.
