Calm down, not everyone will be voting in each of these, but here's what's up next:

  • On April 7th, citizens of Glendale, Inglewood and Long Beach will vote for various elected officials for city and school districts. Glendale also has one ballot measure, a Utility User Tax Ratification and Update.
  • Then on April 21st, Compton will hit the polls for a major city election. There is also one race in Pasadena for District 7.
  • May 19th is the big statewide election that will dominate media and advertisements in your mailbox and on TV and heard on the radio. Get ready, this is the big blockbuster that you'll love to hate.

With the March 3rd and March 24th elections--both had poor voter turnout--that's five elections in the first six months of the year. Oh, and there will be more later beyond that.
