Early voting in the June 3 primary election started on May 5, and Los Angeles County election officials start mailing some 1.4 million vote-by-mail ballots.

County residents must request a vote-by-mail ballot by May 27 or vote in person.

Applications can be requested online at www.lavote.net or by using the form on the back of an official sample ballot. Registered voters can also apply in person at the Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk’s main office at 12400 Imperial Highway in Norwalk.

Those who have already requested a ballot can check the status of their request online.

The primary includes state races for governor, lieutenant governor, secretary of state, controller and attorney general, among others, as well as numerous state Senate and Assembly races.

Several congressional seats are also in play, including a intensely contested battles to replace Democratic Rep. Henry Waxman, who is retiring from the Democrat-dominated 33rd Congressional District seat.

The 33rd District covers several Westside communities, including Bel-Air, Beverly Hills, Brentwood, Malibu, Marina Del Rey, Pacific Palisades, Santa Monica, Venice, and Westwood. There are 17 candidates vying for Waxman’s soon-to-be-vacant seat. An 18th candidate, Theo Milonopololous will join the race as a write-in.

On the other side of the aisle, Republicans are hoping to replace Rep. Howard “Buck” McKeon, who is leaving his Santa Clarita-centered 25th district office.

County races include those for sheriff, assessor and two spots on the five-member Board of Supervisors. Long-standing incumbents Supervisors Gloria Molina and Zev Yaroslavsky will be termed-out at the end of this year.

Yaroslavsky has represented the Westside on the Board of Supervisors since 1994.
