Los Angeles residents will be asked in March to vote on 15 openings in the Los Angeles City Council, Board of Education and Community College Districts.

The filing period for the March 2015 primary closed Wednesday. The final list of candidates will be made available on Dec. 15, after officials have time to verify candidates had gathered enough signatures. But so far it doesn't appear that there will be any surprises.

The races:

Also on the ballot will be odd-numbered districts for the Los Angeles Unified Board of Education and L.A. Community College District Board of Trustees. Incumbent school board members George McKenna, Tamar Galatzan, Bennett Kayser and Richard Vladovic are all running again.  

The election will be held on March 3, 2015, with a runoff scheduled for May 19.

To qualify, candidates had to submit 500 signatures from registered voters and pay a $300 fee or submit the signatures of at least 1,000 registered voters from their district.
