Who Can Vote in this Election?

Download Voter Qualifications

People who live, work or own property in the Greater Wilshire Neighborhood Council area may vote for TWO candidates:

1. The geographic representative for the neighborhood in which you live, work or own property.

2. ONE of the six special interest representatives (Renter, Business, Education, Religion, Other Non-Profit) for which you qualify…OR our At-Large seat.

Anyone may vote for the At Large seat, but to qualify to vote for any of the other five special interest seats, you must meet the qualifications for that category (e.g. only renters can vote for the Renter seat, only people affiliated in some way with a school or religious institution in the area can vote for the Education or Religion seats, etc.)

People who do not live, work or own property in the area, but who do meet the qualifications for one of the special interest categories (e.g. they are a member of a local religious congregation or have a child enrolled in a local school) can vote in that category ONLY, but not for any of the geographical seats.

People who do not live, work or own property in the area, and who do not meet qualifications for the Renter, Business, Education, Religion, or Other Non-Profit organization categories, but who do still claim any other stakeholder connection to the area, may vote ONLY in the race for At-Large representative.

All voters must provide both standard identification and verification of stakeholder category status to vote for both geographic and special interest seats. Voters for the At Large seat must affirm a factual basis for their stakeholder status.
