Los Angeles
County The Government of Los Angeles
Los Angeles
County is defined and authorized under the California
California
Constitution, California
California
law and the Charter of the County of Los Angeles.[34] Much of the Government of California
California
is in practice the responsibility of local governments such as the Government of Los Angeles
Los Angeles
County. The county's voters elect a governing five-member Los Angeles
Los Angeles
County Board of Supervisors. The small size of the board means each supervisor represents over 2 million people. The board operates in a legislative, executive, and quasi-judicial capacity. As a legislative authority, it can pass ordinances for the unincorporated areas (ordinances that affect the whole county, like posting of restaurant ratings, must be ratified by the individual city). As an executive body, it can tell the county departments what to do, and how to do it. As a quasi-judicial body, the Board is the final venue of appeal in the local planning process, and holds public hearings on various agenda items. As of 2008, the Board of Supervisors oversees a $22.5 billion annual budget and approximately 100,000 employees.[35] The county government is managed on a day-to-day basis by a Chief Executive Officer and is organized into many departments, each of which is enormous in comparison to equivalent county-level (and even many state-level) departments anywhere else in the United States. Some of the larger or better-known departments include:

Overview[edit] Los Angeles
Los Angeles
County has voted for the Democratic candidate in most of the presidential elections in the past four decades, and has gone Democratic in every election since 1988. However, it did vote twice for Dwight Eisenhower
Dwight Eisenhower
(1952, 1956), Richard Nixon
Richard Nixon
(1968, 1972), and Ronald Reagan
Ronald Reagan
(1980, 1984) the latter two of whom were Californians. From 1920 to 1984 it was a bellwether county that always voted for the eventual national winner. It voted against the national popular vote winner in 1988 and 2004. In 2008 and 2012 approximately 69% of the electorate voted for Democrat Barack Obama. In 2016, Democrat Hillary Clinton won 71% of the vote, marking the largest percentage of the electorate ever won by a single candidate in the county.[citation needed] In the United States

Los Angeles
County The Los Angeles
Los Angeles
Superior Court, is the county's court of general jurisdiction, while the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California
California
may hear cases where federal jurisdiction is present. Both are headquartered in a large cluster of government buildings in the city's Civic Center. Historically, the courthouses were county-owned buildings that were maintained at county expense, which created significant friction since the trial court judges, as officials of the state government, had to lobby the county Board of Supervisors for facility renovations and upgrades. In turn, the state judiciary successfully persuaded the state Legislature to authorize the transfer of all courthouses to the state government in 2008 and 2009 (so that judges would have direct control over their own courthouses). Courthouse security is still provided by the county government under a contract with the state. Unlike the largest city in the United States, New York City, all of the city of Los Angeles
Los Angeles
and most of its important suburbs are located within a single county. As a result, both the county superior court and the federal district court are respectively the busiest courts of their type in the nation.[42][43] Many celebrities like O. J. Simpson
O. J. Simpson
have been seen in Los Angeles courts. In 2003, the television show Extra (based in nearby Glendale) found itself running so many reports on the legal problems of local celebrities that it spun them off into a separate show, Celebrity Justice. State cases are appealed to the Court of Appeal for the Second Appellate District, which is also headquartered in the Civic Center, and then to the California
California
Supreme Court, which is headquartered in San Francisco
San Francisco
but also hears argument in Los Angeles
Los Angeles
(again, in the Civic Center). Federal cases are appealed to the Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, which hears them at its branch building in Pasadena. The court of last resort for federal cases is the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington, D.C.
