A Message from the City of Torrance City Clerk
For City Elections, your vote will decide the direction the City will take in the next four years. It is easy to register to vote, learning how to choose the candidate may take some of your time. Relying on the neighbor’s choices or the newspaper stories, or how many LIKES there are on a Facebook page are not the only ways to determine how you will cast your vote.
We hope to challenge you, the voter, to make a more informed decision based on your observations and values. If you have relied on others in the past, we invite you to step inside to learn more.
This website was created to empower the voter and to provide each person the ability to frame their own questions based on their own values and to ask questions and build voting skills by learning:
Attend one or more of the Candidate Forums.
TorranceVotes is our chance to give you information that we have provided to the candidates to use in making their own decisions on how they reach the voter when they send you materials, speak at candidate forums sponsored by your neighborhood or civic groups or walk in your neighborhoods.
Torrance has a dynamic Strategic Plan created by its citizens and endorsed by City Councils since 1996 and last updated in 2019. Take a minute to read the document. You may be able to quickly determine which of the Strategic Priorities resonate that you can use to frame your questions to the candidates.
AND we are here to answer your questions if we have overlooked any aspect that you are most interested in! Email CityClerk@TorranceCA.Gov with TorranceVotes in the subject line if you have any questions. Serving as the directly elected City Clerk for the City of Torrance is an honor and a privilege.
