Contests to appear on the ballot in Los Angeles County includes about 40 statewide offices, 19 countywide offices, 18 congressional offices, 9 local offices, 6 local measures and 2 state measures. There are 310 candidates vying over 86 seats.

In Southeast Los Angeles County, five candidates will be running in the 32nd State Senate District including former Assembly Members Tony Mendoza and Sally Morales Havice, Downey City Councilman Mario Guerra, Whittier School Board Member Irella Perez and Businessman Carlos Arvizu.  The top two finishers will square off in the November General Election and the winner will replace indicted California State Senator Ronald Calderon.
