California voters are getting ready for the June 7, 2022 Primary Elections. Los Angeles County will mail ballots to every registered voter on May 9.
Lynwood voters will consider a proposition that will allow Lynwood City Councilmembers to hold office for no more than three four-year terms. A term limit is a legal restriction that limits the number of terms a person may serve in a particular elected office.
If approved, this will align the city of Lynwood with the term limit requirements California voters have imposed on state legislators.
When you receive your ballot in the mail, it will give you information on the various candidates and issues on which we will vote in Los Angeles County on June 7. A reminder that you can fill out your ballot and mail it in the envelope provided in the drop boxes at the Library and at Rose Park.
You can also bring it to the voting center on June 7 or cast your vote in person at the Lynwood Community Center.
Here’s the ballot language:
No person shall serve more than three consecutive terms on the Lynwood city
council. The completion of any unexpired term to which such person was elected or
appointed shall not be considered a term for the purposes of this subsection. Any elected
official who has served three consecutive terms shall not be reelected as a member
of the city council.
