There are still ballots from the Measure J election remaining to be counted, but we believe the results are unlikely to change. It’s always useful to know where support did and didn’t come from across sprawling Los Angeles County on any kind of transportation issue, so we spent some time yesterday assembling the following maps with the help of Metro Transportation Planner Marie Sullivan.
The map below is based on the results of the election posted early Wednesday by the Los Angeles County Registrar. Not surprisingly, support for Measure J was strongest in the more urbanized parts of Los Angeles County, where there is also the most transit service.
The map below shows the final results of Measure R in 2008. Compared to the Measure J results, the most striking thing is there are fewer areas where support ran under 50 percent and there are more areas around the county where support was over 70 percent.
The map below shows the difference in support between Measure J in 2012 and Measure R in 2008. There’s nothing here that isn’t obvious from this week’s election results: in most parts of the county the majority of voters supported J but overall support for J was less than it was for R.
After the jump: the city-by-city breakdown of Measure J votes.
We know that many of you want to see city-by-city results given the many different viewpoints expressed on Measure R and Measure J by localities across L.A. County. The first list below shows how the Measure J vote went in each city of the county (pdf here).
The following shows the difference in each city between the Measure R vote and Measure J vote (pdf here).
