The DLANC board of directors meets in the lobby of the Los Angeles Theatre in September of 2009.

Statewide primary elections are underway today, but Downtown Los Angeles will vote in its new slate of elected representatives later this month. All 28 seats on the Downtown L.A. Neighborhood Council will be up for grab in the biennial election, which takes place on Friday, June 25.

On Monday evening the council will be hosting a candidate meeting designed to give those in the neighborhood a chance to meet the folks running for office. The event is scheduled to run from 6:30 to 8:30pm, and will take place at The Exchange (114 W. 5th).

52 candidates will be listed on the ballot, though only 13 of the 28 seats will decided by races in which there are more candidates than seats. Most popular is the Arts, Cultural and Education Interests Director position, with eight candidates vying for only three seats. Both the At-Large Director and South Park Business Director positions have four candidates running for a single seat.

The June 25 election runs from 2 to 8pm in order to accomodate both those who live and work Downtown. It too will take place at The Exchange.

More information can be found on the DLANC election news website.
