77 candidates for a variety of offices have qualified to appear on the March 5, 2013 ballot, L.A. City Clerk June Lagmay announced today.

The most crowded race -- at 12 candidates -- is for Council District 13, which Eric Garcetti is vacating to run for Mayor, a race of eight candidates in itself. Other L.A. positions up for grabs are City Controller, City Attorney, and seats for seven more districts, most which will bring new faces to the City Council. Board member positions for LAUSD and the L.A. Community College District will also be on the ballot.

A random alphabet drawing determined the order in which candidates are listed in each race.
