The battle for the highly sought-after L.A. City Council District 10 seat intensifies as incumbent councilwoman Heather Hutt and aspiring candidate Grace Yoo surge into a head-to-head showdown in the upcoming November general election. Hutt leads the race, securing a commanding 38% of the vote, while Yoo closely follows in second place with a formidable 26% of the vote.

Eddie Anderson, who scored an endorsement from the Los Angeles Times, placed third with 15% of the vote. Aura Vasquez, and Assemblyman Reggie Jones-Sawyer filled out the remaining slots with fourth and fifth place, respectively. 

The incumbent councilwoman released the following statement after clinching her spot in the runoff: “I came into this position because of my communities support and investment in me, and since the time I’ve been here it’s always been about serving them and working together to make CD10 a better place to live work and raise our families. I am looking forward to continuing the work, and am enjoying being a part of the democratic process.” 

To date, approximately 20,000 votes have been tallied as of March 7, constituting a mere 16% of the vast electorate in a district boasting over 100,000 registered voters.

 The 2024 California general election is set for November 5th, 2024. The last day to register to vote for the general election is October 21, 2024. All California active registered voters will receive a vote-by-mail ballot once ballots start to go out beginning October 7, 2024.
