On May 14, residents will choose the next mayor, District 1 councilman and District 4 council member, as well as vote for a new city treasurer, in the city of Redondo Beach. Are you registered to vote?
You can check your voter registration status online. You can also call 562-466-1310 or 562-466-1323 to check. Make sure you're registered at your current address—if your address is no longer current, you'll need to re-register.
If you're not registered, there's still time. But you need to register or re-register by Tuesday, April 30, to vote in the primary. As long as your registration is postmarked by at least 15 days before the election or you hand it in on or before that date, you're good to go.
