SACRAMENTO, California: Election day is here for City of Los Angeles voters. May 21st marks the sixth date in 2013 when local ballot measure elections are scheduled to take place in California. Polls open at 7 am and close at 8 pm PT. Today voters will decide on ballot measures, mayors and school boards. Below are quick links to each of those issues.

Three seats on the board of the Los Angeles Unified School District are up for election in 2013, covering Districts 2, 4 and 6. Incumbents Mónica García and Steve Zimmer won Districts 2 and 4. District 6, however, remained pending following the March 5 elections.

Incumbent Nury Martinez did not run for re-election in District 6, campaigning instead for the District 6 seat on the Los Angeles City Council. Antonio Sanchez and Monica Ratliff emerged as the top two candidates in the March 5 elections. Both will face-off in today's elections. In the March primary, 44% of voters voted for Sanchez, while 34% selected Ratliff. Through May 15, 2013, a total of $244,298.17 has been contributed to all direct candidate campaign committees in 2013 school board elections. An additional $2 million had been spent via independent expenditure; all independent expenditures were spent on behalf of just one District 6 candidate, Antonio Sanchez.
