Primary Elections Next Tuesday

The two hot issues in Culver City are the election to replace Mark Ridley-Thomas in the 2nd Supervisorial District and Culver City Measure CC. Ridley-Thomas has termed out and is running for Herb Wesson's seat on the Los Angeles City Council.

The top three contenders in the supervisor's race are Los Angeles City Councilman Herb Wesson, State Senator Holly Mitchell and former Los Angeles City Councilwoman Jan Perry. Following the pack is Carson City Councilman Al Robles with Jake Jeong, Rene Lorenzo Rigard and Jorge Nuno rounding it out.

Culver City residents will vote on Measure CC: the continuation of the current Measure Y half-cent sales tax. Currently, Measure Y will sunset in the year 2023. If approved by Culver City voters, Measure CC would extend Measure Y by 10 more years. The half-cent sales tax would continue to generate approximately $9.8 million dollars annually until 2033. The city currently has plans for an additional ¼ sales tax increase to be on the ballot in the November general election.

Although polling centers are already open next Tuesday will be the big day. Local polling places have been replaced by voting centers.

While you can cast your ballot at any vote center in Los Angeles County the Culver City vote centers are at the following locations:

Julian Dixon Library

4975 Overland Avenue

Veterans Memorial Complex Auditorium

5100 Overland Avenue

Rotary Plaza Community Room

Stoneview Nature Center Training Room

While some vote centers are now open all will be open beginning Saturday February 29. Election officials acknowledge there will be some confusion over the new voting system and encourage votes to vote early.
