Candidate registration has started and continues until 11:59 p.m. on Tues. April 12. All 17 Board seats are up for election and the term for each is two years. See the descriptions of each seat and who has filed as candidates at https://empowerla.org/elections/region12/hgnnc16/ For any questions about candidate registration, call the City Clerk at (213) 978-0444 or email the City Clerk at firstname.lastname@example.org
This election season will be a bit different in that for the first time voting will be done online. Voters will sign up to vote. Voters may vote online May 21-June 11 or may sign up and vote in person at the polls. Voting at the polls is done online and devices will be available for voters to cast their ballots.
Voters must be 18 years old to vote and provide proof of your status. Even, if you are already registered to vote in regular city, state and federal elections, you will need to register for our election separately, as the systems are different. Also, if you are a stakeholder for multiple Neighborhood Councils, you will need to register for each one separately.
