Depending on your district, you may also vote for District Attorney, judges, and party positions. Learn more about the offices on your ballot.  

It’s ranking time. This year’s primary election is on June 27. In primary elections, you choose who will represent your political party in the general election. When you vote for City Council in the primary, you’ll have the chance to rank your top five candidates in order of preference instead of choosing just one. Learn more about Ranked Choice Voting.
