Candidates for the LA elected office in June must live in the district by January 8th

Danny J. Bakewell, Sr. and several black citizens hosted a gathering for LA mayoral candidate Karen Bass and 150+ leaders of the city’s African American community. Audience members unanimously promised to support the Bass campaign.

Candidates running in Los Angeles for the June 7, 2022 primary election must reside in this jurisdiction or the district’s newly drawn boundaries by January 8, the Los Angeles City Clerk reminded candidates today.

The new city council and education districts will take effect on January 1 after being redesigned this year using data from the 2020 census. The primary election on June 7 includes elections for mayor, controller, city attorney, city council districts (1, 3, 5 , 7, 9, 11, 13 and 15) and the Los Angeles Unified School District Board of Education (Districts 2, 4 and 6).

Candidates for mayor, controller, city attorney and city council must also be registered voters in the city. Candidates for education must be registered voters within LAUSD. The January 8 deadline is set by the City Charter, which requires candidates to live in the district 30 days before Feb. 7, the first day candidates can file a statement of intent to become a candidate.

Candidates who do not meet the residency requirement will be disqualified to run for office in that district in the June 7 primary election. People can see the new City Council districts at bit.ly/3FH8Dbj and the new Education Council at bit.ly/3EA5DMI.
