Early voting for L.A.'s municipal election has begun.

Registered absentee voters could see ballots arrive in their mailboxes as early as this week. Voters can apply for a mail-in ballot until Feb. 26. The ballots must be received by the City Clerk’s office by 8 p.m. on election day, March 5.

Applications for absentee ballots can be found on the back of the Official Sample Ballot that is sent to all registered voters.

The spring primary includes elections for the mayor’s office, city attorney, controller and half of the Los Angeles City Council. Voters will also be asked to take a position on a half-cent sales tax increase and a slight change in police officers’ pensions.
