LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Los Angeles County voters made their way to the polls on Tuesday.

Residents weighed in on the following measures:

— Measure H: a quarter-cent county sales tax increase to fund the fight against homelessness

— Measure S: a much-debated initiative aimed at limiting development for all General Plan amendments, or special permission to developers known as “spot zoning,” for two years.

— Measure M: allows the city to repeal a current ban on medical marijuana dispensaries under the previously approved Proposition D and replace it with a new set of rules for different types of marijuana businesses

— Measure N: calls for giving permitting priority to 135 businesses that have been allowed to operate under the Proposition D ban, and includes taxation and permitting provisions

Twenty-seven cities are holding elections for mayor, city council and school board seats as well as other offices.

Mayor Eric Garcetti is seeking re-election among a crowd of 10 challengers in the city election, but he holds a significant fundraising advantage. A recent poll shows he has a commanding lead in the race.

The polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

  1. If those Idiots who sponsor measure S don’t like a growing Los Angeles they can just move somewhere else like the east coast or Frisco.
