The City's General Municipal Elections are consolidated elections with Los Angeles County, which are conducted on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November of even-numbered years. The next General Municipal Election will be held on November 6, 2018. In May 2015, the Council voted to consolidate the City elections with the statewide general election in November of even years in an effort to increase voter participation.
Before any candidate raises or spends any money in connection with their campaign, they must first fill out and sign the Declaration of Intent to Solicit and Receive Contributions Form and the Fair Political Practices Commission Form 501 and file them with the City Clerk. Both forms are available online at the City’s elections web page along with information on important dates, voter registration, vote-by-mail ballots, and candidates. The page will be regularly updated with new information.
