Upcoming elections March 7th

On March 7th, the city of Los Angeles will hold primary elections for mayor, eight city council seats, city attorney, and city controller. Any race where no candidate earns a majority (50 percent plus one) of the primary votes will advance to a general election on May 16.

Also on the ballot in Los Angeles County is Measure H, the Los Angeles County Plan to Prevent and Combat Homelessness. This ballot measure would fund services to end homelessness for 45,000 people across Los Angeles County, including women and children, veterans, seniors, foster youth, and the disabled. It will also prevent homelessness for 30,000 people.

Polls will be open from 7am-8pm. If you vote by mail and have not returned your ballot yet, make sure to bring it to the polling place before polls close at 8:00 PM.

If you experience any problems at your polling place call the national voter protection hotline at 866-OUR-VOTE.

We must protect our LEGACY of civic engagement from those who fought to win for us the right to vote and the ability to defend our political interests at the ballot box. Please take a minute now to make sure your rights are safe. Then forward this on to friends and family, to remind them before the deadline passes.

Thank you for your commitment to our community.
