The 2015 Primary Nominating Election to be held on March 3, 2015, voters who wish to Vote-By-Mail (VBM) may submit their application for a VBM ballot beginning Monday, February 2.

All applications must be received by the Election Division no later than Tuesday, February 24 at 5:00 p.m. Applications can be mailed to the Office of the City Clerk - Election Division, 555 Ramirez St., Space 300, Los Angeles, CA 90012 or faxed to (213) 978-0611 or (213) 978-0612.
Applications for a VBM ballot can be found on the back cover of the Official Sample Ballot, which is mailed to all registered voters. Applications are also available on the Election Division website in English and the following languages: Armenian, Chinese, Farsi, Hindi, Japanese, Korean, Russian, Spanish, Tagalog, Thai, and Vietnamese.
If you require further information or assistance, please contact the Office of the City Clerk - Election Division between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, at (213) 978-0444 or toll-free at (888) 873-1000.
