With the candidates on the June 5 primary election ballot finalized, campaigns and voter registration drives are underway.

Recently drawn redistricting maps put previous representatives, Rep. Adam Schiff and Assemblyman Anthony Portantino in new districts, leaving Altadena residents voting for brand new representatives in the House of Representatives and Assembly.  State Sen. Carol Liu, who currently represents Altadena, is running again in the new district representing Altadena.

While Portantino originally said he would be running for Congress,

Races for the new districts representing South Pasadena include State Senator 25th District, U.S. Representative 27th District and State Assembly 41st District.

The top two vote-getters in the June 5 primary election will advance to the Nov. 6 general election regardless of party preference or whether one candidate receives a majority of votes in the primary.
