Nearly 4,000 Vote by Mail Ballots Submitted by Pasadena Residents So Far

Published on Thursday, February 22, 2024 | 5:54 pm

According to early voting numbers obtained by Pasadena Now, as of Feb. 21, more than 3,000 people had submitted ballots for the March 5 election.

In total, 3,889 people citywide have returned their vote by mail ballots.

In-person voting begins on Saturday.

So far, District 4 leads the way in votes cast with 735 votes.

In 2020, District 4 Incumbent Gene Masuda garnered 59.08% of the vote in his district and outpaced Char Bland, Joe Baghdadlian, and Kevin Wheeler.

This year, Masuda faces Jonathan Horton and Jon Doyle.

In District 2, 476 ballots have been submitted and 368 in District 3.

Locally, the District 2 and District 3 races have garnered a lot of attention where Incumbent Felicia Williams is squaring off against former Mayor Rick Cole, and Incumbent Justin Jones is defending his seat against challenger Brandon Lamar, respectively.

Keep in mind, due to the size and the number of the races being contested state and nationwide, all voters may not have bothered to cast votes for City Council races which are at the bottom of the ballot.

In response to a change in the law to create higher voter turnout, the City Council voted in 2018 to change its voting cycle to match state elections in even years.

The new schedule began officially in 2020 when voter turnout was high due to the Trump-Biden presidential matchup.
