2022/23 Neighborhood Council Elections
94 of LA’s 99 Neighborhood Councils are holding elections this season between November 2022
and June 2023. Voting in all NC elections this season will be hybrid meaning In-Person and Vote-By-Mail.
When is my Neighborhood Council Election?
Neighborhood Council elections happen on 12 different regional timelines over a six-month cycle. This election cycle there will be In Person Voting and Vote-By-Mail ballots which are postage paid but must be requested online or by mail. Look up your NC’s Election Day and ballot request deadline
Get a Vote-By-Mail Ballot
Vote-By-Mail ballots are only available by request for NC elections. Ballots are postage-paid and can be returned by mail or at the polls. Ballot request dates vary by election region. Ballots may be requested beginning in late January 2023, using the button below.
When to Vote
You may vote in person on Election Day or by mail. Please note that Vote-By-Mail ballot requests close 19 days prior to your official Election Day, so ballots are received and returned by the deadline.
Who’s on a Neighborhood Council?
While Neighborhood Council board members are volunteers, they are public officials elected by the members of their community. Most board members serve two-year terms; a few Neighborhood Councils have four-year terms.
Who can run or vote?
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.
Candidates and voters 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 most NC seats is 18, except for Youth Seat candidates, who may be between the ages of 14-17.
