Meet the Candidates

Where and How to Request a Ballot

Where do I get my ballot? Qualified Voters must create a Voter Application to receive the NC ballot. To apply go to: https://clerk.lacity.org/elections/neighborhood-councilelections/vote-by-mail-application

Who Can Vote?

There are 21 open seats on the TNC. The TNC board members are volunteers, they are public officials elected by the members of their community. Most board members serve two-year terms. All 21 seats/positions on the TNC are open.

Unlike other city, state, or federal elections, voting and being a candidate in Neighborhood Council (NC) elections is open to more than just the residents of a community. Participation is open to those who live, work, or own property or a business within an NC’s boundaries, as well as to “community interest stakeholders,” such as church members, local students (or parents of students), or members of local service organizations. Please check TNC Boundary Map here.

Candidates need not be US citizens or legal residents to qualify. Participation is also open to the formerly incarcerated. The minimum age to vote is 16; the minimum age to run for a TNC seat is 18.

There are 3 ballot types. After completing the ballot application, stakeholders will be sent one of three ballots. Below is a description of the ballots, and which candidates the stakeholder may vote for:
