Voters will go to the polls Tuesday to pick a replacement for former Rep. Jane Harman and choose one board member each for the Los Angeles Unified School District and the Los Angeles Community College District.

Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Mail-in ballots must be received by the time polls close or can be dropped off at a voting place on election day.

Sixteen candidates are on the ballot in the 36th Congressional District to replace Harman, who resigned in February. If no one wins a majority in that special election Tuesday, the top two finishers, regardless of party, will compete in a July 12 runoff.

Information about voting in the congressional race is available through Los Angeles County elections officials, or by calling (562) 466-1323.

For help with the runoff elections in the school and college districts, contact the Los Angeles city clerk's office online at or phone (888) 873-1000 or (213) 978-0444.
