16 candidates for a variety of offices will appear on the May 21, 2013 general municipal ballot, Los Angeles City Clerk June Lagmay announced today. That's in addition to the six vying in the special primary election for the city's 6th City Council District, which has been open since earlier this year when Tony Cardenas went off to Congress.

Because this is election is a run-off, not all offices are up for grabs anymore. A number of candidates won seats outright during the primary election on March 5. Those include seats 2 and 4 for both the LAUSD and Community College boards and Council Districts 3, 5, 7, and 15.

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