Los Angeles City Clerk Holly Wolcott announced Monday that the second and final workshop for candidates planning to run for an elected office in the 2020 primary will take place on Saturday.

The workshop will outline how to file a declaration of intention to become a candidate and will address the process of collecting signatures for nominating petitions.

The clerk’s office “strongly recommends” all potential candidates who did not attend the first workshop turn out for the final event, scheduled for 10 a.m. at the Election Division Office in the Piper Technical Center’s Office of the City Clerk Election Division, 555 Ramirez St., space 300.

Candidates can make reservations for the workshop at www.clerk.lacity.org/elections/candidates or by calling the City Clerk’s Election Division at 213-978-0444 on weekdays between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.

“When you call to RSVP, please indicate your contact information and the number of attendees in your party. These workshops are not substitutes for the separate, mandatory candidate and treasurer training sessions held by the Ethics Commission,” according to a clerk’s office statement.

Visit the Ethics Commission’s website for more information about training sessions at www.ethics.lacity.org.

All candidates running for elected office in the March 3 primary must have resided in the applicable jurisdiction in which they are running for office as of Oct. 5. Candidates running for specific City Council and Los Angeles Unified School District seats must have resided in the respective district by that date, according to the clerk’s office.
