The latest update of this week's election results revealed little change in several local, state and federal races, including high-profile Council District 4 contest between incumbent David Ryu and challenger Nithya Raman.

Raman was leading with 52.46% of the vote compared to Ryu with 47.54%, said the L.A. County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk reported on Thursday. The race to represent Council District 4 -- which includes portions of Los Feliz and Silver Lake -- has drawn widespread attention as a sign of resurgent progressive politics.
