The presidential primary might be getting the most attention in the upcoming March 3 election, but if you're in L.A. County, there's another big race on your ballot: the Board of Supervisors District 2 seat.

The five-member Board of Supervisors manages L.A. County’s $30 billion annual budget and oversees services for the 10 million people who make up the nation’s most populous county. Among those services: mental health, care for the homeless, foster care, juvenile detention, public health, law enforcement and the L.A. Sheriff’s Department, L.A. Metro, county beaches, parks, libraries and governing over the unincorporated cities. In short: This is an incredibly powerful seat to hold.

And you get to vote on who fills it.

Our Voter Game Plan project has a new guide on the top four candidates for the District 2 race: Jake Jeong, Holly Mitchell, Jan Perry and Herb Wesson. Read up, and vote wisely.
