2020 Election Results ‘With a Majority of Votes Cast’
34,000 Registered voters in Cerritos….only about 5,000-10,000 voted. Absentee votes have tell Friday to be received, so next week, harvested tallies can change big time. Few seats are very close to call in the city.

Appears shoppers from neighboring cities maybe shopping in Cerritos, since we did not pass the sales tax increase, but Cerritos sales tax is still higher then OC. Feel LW Mall shoppers will be spending money in Cerritos, where the sales tax is cheaper compared to Lakewood –Long Beach and Downey.
