Community activist Wendy Carrillo and healthcare director Luis Lopez appear to be headed for a December runoff after emerging as the top vote getters in today’s 51st State Assembly District primary, based on preliminary results.

With 100% of precincts reporting, Carrillo won the biggest share of votes, 21%, followed by Lopez, with 19.13%, according to the L.A. County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk. College trustee Mike Fong, who had taken the lead in early results, came in third with 16.62%.

Since no candidate won 50% of the vote, the two frontrunners are now headed for a Dec. 5 runoff election.

The preliminary results must still be certified by election officials and outstanding ballots tabulated.

Carillo and Lopez were among 13 candidates on the ballot.
