Candidate registration for the March 31, 2019 GWNC Elections opened on December 16, 2018 and will remain open until January 15, 2019.
Registration is open for all 21 board seats: 15 by geographic region and 6 by special interest category (representing Renters, Business, Education, Religion, Other Non-Profit groups, and At-Large). Those elected would serve a two-year term beginning in April 2019.
There were 21 board seats available, with 37 candidates running for 20 of them (the Education seat had no registered candidates). Under GWNC bylaws, the first place finisher in each race becomes the Board Member for that seat, while the second place finisher becomes the official Alternate for that seat.

Your Neighborhood Council needs you! Are you 18 and over, want to learn the mechanics of democracy first-hand, and have some time to spare on Sunday, May 1st? We’re looking for a few good volunteers to assist at our polling place between 11am and 5pm (or part of that time if that’s all you are available).
It’s a chance to meet your neighbors, get involved with local government, and see democracy in action (really…see how every vote matters).
If you are Korean-English or Spanish-English bilingual, we particularly need your skills.
November 16, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm Memorial Branch Library, 4625 W Olympic Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90019, USA
