Endorsements

 

The Los Angeles County Democratic Party issues endorsements in local and municipal candidate races and takes positions on statewide and local ballot measures. Endorsements issued by the LACDP in local and municipal races become the official endorsements of the California Democratic Party.

Likewise, the LACDP Judicial Interview Committee conducts the endorsement process for judicial offices after the candidate filing deadline.

Local and Municipal Offices: The LACDP Assembly District (AD) Delegations conduct the endorsement process for local and municipal offices.
