Maybe you misplaced your voter guide or need a quick recap of some of the candidates for Tuesday’s election. Fret not, Long Beach. We’ve got the main information—or can tell you where to find them right here.
Election Day in Long Beach will be taking place Tuesday, April 10 with polling places scheduled to open from 7:00AM to 8:00PM.

No identification is needed to vote, but if you want to know where you are supposed to vote and the options available, make sure to bring your sample ballot.
This is a citywide election so every registered voter will be able to vote for a candidate in at least one office on the ballot, which in this case is the office of the mayor. Read more about Henk Conn, who is running against incumbent Mayor Robert Garcia, here.
While the candidate choice for mayor is slim, residents in council districts Three, Five, Seven and Nine will have multiple candidates to choose from as their next representative. Click on each district number to find out more about the candidates.
Some residents will also be voting for a board trustee in Area 1 of the Long Beach Community College District and a Board of Education member in District 3 of the Long Beach Unified School District.
