. . . For Next Month's Primary Election
Whether your voting interest in the upcoming June 5 California Primary is the Pasadena Unified School District charter amendment creating sub-districts, races for the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors and the California Legislature, or the U.S. Senate and presidential contests, you first have to be registered to cast your ballot.
With the June 5 primary election just a few weeks away, Pasadena City Clerk Mark Jomsky reminds the public that the registration deadline to vote next month is May 21.
Voter registration in Los Angeles County is open to any county resident age 18 or over, or who will be 18 by the time of the election, who is not currently in custody or on parole for a felony conviction.
Registrants must fill out a hard-copy form and return it to the County Elections Office, Jomsky said. Registration forms are available at most government buildings in Los Angeles County, including all Pasadena city offices, public libraries and community centers. Forms also can be downloaded from the California Secretary of State's website at www.sos.ca.gov/elections/register-to-vote/.
In addition to federal and state elective-office races and the Pasadena Unified School District sub-district proposal, Measure A, this year's primary ballot includes state measures dealing with legislator term limits and the cigarette tax as well as county tax measures related to hotel occupancy and landfills.
