Balloting for contested seats on Neighborhood Councils in the Northwest Valley began Thursday and continue Saturday.

At Northridge Middle School, 107 stakeholders signed-in to vote, New England Town Hall style, in a real demonstration of grass-roots democracy. Of the 95 Neighborhood Councils in Los Angeles, about 88 are voting for new board members this year.

The Northridge South Neighborhood Council was the first in Region 2 to vote. Clusters of councils will be voting at different times across the city during the following weeks.

The Northridge South balloting was classified as a "selection," rather than an election. Councilmembers were "selected" by community members who raised their hands to vote with scraps of colored paper, signifying their candidate choices at a Town Hall meeting. The papers were collected and counted by independent volunteers from other councils.

Most councils will have traditional elections on Saturday where stakeholders can go to polling places [see list below] and mark their choices on ballots.

Here is the result of the Northridge South Neighborhood Council Town Hall selection:

Business Stakehlder (two seats)

√ Fred Youssif 56 √ Donnal Poppe 46 Debu Seltzer 43

Residential Stakeholder (six seats)


Virginia Watts 72 √ Jan Scott 68 √ Michael Savage 58 √ Tom Bramson 55 √ Andrea Alvarado 55 √ Margaret Landers 52 Dan McCrory 34
