The Mid City Neighborhood council is a locally elected board comprised of twenty-three (23) people. Vacant seats may be filled by application and a majority vote of current board members. Elections are held in the first or second quarter of odd numbered years, spaced in two-year intervals. Region Representatives serve a four (4) year term. All other Representatives serve two (2) year terms. Appointed board members fill out the term of the vacated seat.

     Board members are sworn representatives of the City of Los Angeles and must pass finance and ethics certification training. Neighborhood Council board members are entrusted to represent Mid City's interests to the Mayor, City Council and all City government departments and agencies and are tasked by the City Charter with “assisting in the delivery of city services” and “bringing government closer to the people” by holding public meetings within neighborhood council official boundaries and hearing the public’s opinion on matters of concern.


     The most recent MINC elections were held on June 8th, 2019. Board Members were sworn in on July 8th 2019. The next MINC elections will be held on May 25, 2021. This will be the first vote-by-mail only neighborhood council election. Starting Jan 23, 2021, you can file as a candidate on the LA City Clerk website here.

From time to time MINC has open board seats which can be filled by board appointment. Email and come to a stakeholder meeting to find out more.
