Compton Elections: Unofficial Results

Compton residents are a gluton for punishment.  Despite the city’s woes: $3.7 million missing taxpayer dollars, Compton’s declaration of a fiscal emergency, lack of enforcement of the city charter/municipal code and no new development in the city, residents are poised to re-elect the very same leadership they so tirelessly complain about on social media.  Here are the unofficial results with nearly 1,400 provisional ballots left to count.

Many issues were attributed to the alleged “calculated” bomb threat that forced the evacuation of City Hall.  Complaints lodged on social media include:  normal polling places not being made available on Compton Unified school campuses, despite the district being on spring break.

Closure of normal polling places (Ron McNair) forced a large number of voters to have to vote provisionally, which then caused polling places, like Dollarhide Senior Center, to run out of provisional ballots and upwards of an hour, to be replenished.

General Election will be held Tuesday, June 6th.

    Why does it take so long to count this small number of votes? Why hasn’t the County stepped in to oversee the voting process in Compton? There’s clearly corruption and fraud happening here and it makes me sick to my stomach.
