The June 7 primary election is right around the corner and La Cañada Flintridge City Manager Mark Alexander said residents should expect to receive their vote-by-mail ballots from the state the week of May 9.
“Get ready because the ballots are about to hit our households,” Alexander said during Tuesday’s City Council meeting.
LCF residents can mail their completed ballots using the U.S. Postal Service or drop them off at the Los Angeles County ballot box located in front of the LCF Library any time before the deadline, which is at 8 p.m. on election day.
Another option is to vote in person, which can be done at City Hall on Monday, June 6, between 10 a.m.-4 p.m. The La Cañada Unified School District office on Cornishon Avenue will be open on election day for in-person voting from 7 a.m.-8 p.m.
Alexander said that the city is exploring other possible voting centers before the election to provide citizens with as many opportunities as possible to participate in the election.
Many state offices are up for grabs this election, including that of governor, secretary of state and attorney general, as well as two seats in the LCF City Council. Mike Davitt and Jonathan Curtis’ terms are up, and the former is the only one seeking re-election.
Parks and Recreation Commissioners Marija Decker and Kim Bowman are also vying for a seat on the council, as well as longtime LCF resident Jack Schaedel, who served as president of the La Cañada Flintridge Educational Foundation and various other leadership roles in city.
LCF voters will have an opportunity to hear from the four council candidates in a forum that will be held at Flintridge Prep at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, May 4.
