Voters heading to polls in parts of L.A., Southern California
They'll pick a mayor for Palm Springs, decide whether to give a 93-year-old activist a seat on the Hawthorne City Council, weigh in on some proposed reforms for Vernon and approve or reject some municipal tax and school bond measures.
In Los Angeles, voters will choose among 11 candidates to replace Rep. Janice Hahn on the City Council. A runoff almost certainly will be needed as it is unlikely any one candidate can win the majority vote needed to win Tuesday.
Polls are open until 8 p.m. Voters with questions should contact their local city clerk's office in most cases, although the Los Angeles County Registrar Recorder/County Clerk is handling some of the local elections.
