As of Wednesday at 10 a.m. Los Angeles County District Attorney Steve Cooley held a 9,555-vote lead over San Francisco District Attorney Kamala Harris in the race for attorney general.

Cooley has 3,895,569 votes, 45.9 percent, to 3,886,014 for Harris, 45.8 percent.  When polls closed Nov. 2, Cooley declared victory, but by early the next day, Nov. 3, Harris led by almost 15,000 votes. However, with thousands of ballots remaining to be counted, the race was (and remains) too close to call.

Under state law, county registrars of voters must complete the vote counting by Nov. 30 and provide their counts to the Secretary of State's Office by Dec. 3.
