Public Random Candidate Drawing

Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk (RR/CC) Dean Logan announced today that a public random alphabet drawing for the June 8, 2010 Primary Election will be held March 18 at 11:00 a.m. at the RR/CC, 12400 Imperial Highway, Norwalk, CA to determine the order in which candidate names for state legislative races will appear on Los Angeles County’s ballot.

About the Random Drawing

The drawing consists of randomly choosing letters of the alphabet to determine corresponding candidate names for positions on the ballot.  For example, if the letter “C” is chosen and corresponds to a candidate whose last name begins with the letter “C”, that candidate is placed in the first position on the ballot.  If there are two candidates whose names begin with the letter “C”, a second letter is chosen to determine which candidate assumes the first position and so forth.  The alphabet sequences resulting from the random drawing determine the order of candidate names only in the Los Angeles County portion of state legislative districts shared with neighboring counties.

The following State Assembly Districts in Los Angeles County cut across other county boundaries: 36, 37, 38, 41, 56, 59, 60 and 61.
