Monday is the deadline to register to vote in the Jan. 22 special election for the 1st District seat on the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors.
Those over the age of 18 who live in the district--which stretches from El Sereno and Lincoln Heights, east to Irwindale and La Puente and southeast to Santa Fe Springs--can obtain voter registration applications at post offices, county offices and many banks.
The county Registrar of Voters also will mail registration applications to anyone who telephones (213) 721-1100.
Voter applications will be accepted by mail in the registrar's office until Dec. 28, registrar spokeswoman Marcia Ventura said.
If no candidate receives more than 50% of the vote in the Jan. 22 election, the top two finishers will face off in a Feb. 19 runoff. The close of registration for that contest will be Jan. 22.
