Order of Names on Ballot (2022 General Municipal Election)

Have you ever wondered why candidates’ names do not appear in standard alphabetical order on ballots? In 1975 legislation was passed in response to court rulings declaring that standard alphabetical order or incumbent-first, was unconstitutional. Pursuant to Elections Code section 13112 a randomized alphabet drawing is held by the Secretary of State, on the 82nd day before an election, to determine the order of the names.  

Per the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk the City's order of names on the ballot needed correction. 

Please see the corrected order for Rancho Palos Verdes’ qualified candidates below: 

  1. Kevin Jay Yourman
  2. David L. Bradley
  3. Michele P. Carbone
  4. Stephen Perestam
  5. Paul Seo 
  6. Barbara Ferraro
