In 2013, Los Angeles will be electing a new mayor, as well as a City Attorney and other positions. In addition, residents of City Council districts 1,3,5,6,7,9,11,13, & 15 will be selecting new City Council representatives.

Korean American voters voted in massive numbers at the November 2012 elections and were critical in passing Proposition 30, which taxes the top 2% to save public education and social services. The 2013 elections are an opportunity for voters to support progressive values, and demand that candidates stand up for working and immigrant families, and help form good-paying jobs in Los Angeles. KRC is helping community members learn about the candidates by publishing a candidate questionnaire.

If you are already registered to vote in Los Angeles, and you have not moved, you can vote without having to register again. You can check your registration status at or at the Korean Resource Center.
