March 8th Elections in Los Angeles County

On March 8th voters across Los Angeles County went to the polls for one of the last odd-year elections the region will see thanks to California Senate Bill 415. SB 415 passed in 2015 and stipulates that all cities, counties, and school districts in the state will be required to align their elections with statewide elections by 2022. The bill is an effort to boost turnout in these municipalities as odd year votes have historically dismal turnout. In 2017 LA’s turnout was just 8.43%.

Elections were held this month in the cities of Glendora, Hidden Hills, Huntington Park, LAUSD, Manhattan Beach, Montebello, Palos Verdes Estates, Redondo Beach, Rolling Hills, Signal Hill, and West Hollywood. There were four revenue generating measures on the ballot and they all passed, three passed with more than 2/3 of the vote. Check out the official vote below:

  •     Glendora Measure E - .75% Transactions & Use Tax (Approved) 
    • Yes: 54%
    • No: 46%
