3rd district participants:

According to the current 3rd District Supervisor Kuehl

"With nearly two million residents, the LA County Board of Supervisors Third District has a population (2,061,345) larger than 14 states & Washington DC."

However, given that there are five districts for a 10 million population county each of the districts would have the same demographics.  All four candidates are Democrats.  The demographics of their districts are
District 5

  • Democratic Party - 525,091
  • Republican Party -   282,162
  • No Party/Independent - 269,266

District 3 

  • Democratic Party - 653,704
  • Republican Party - 196,226
  • No Party/Independent - 283,795

Los Angeles County

  • Democratic Party - 2,998,541 (53.4%)
  • Republican Party - 962,562 (17.14%)
  • No Party/Independent - 1,306,317 (23.26%)

According to a 12/15/21 article in the Los Angeles Times, detailing the new boundaries, set by the county Redistricting Commission, for each L.A. County Supervisorial District:

"Kuehl’s 3rd District lost some world-renowned cultural venues — the Hollywood Bowl, the L.A. County Museum of Art, the Ford, the La Brea Tar Pits and the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures — to the 2nd and 5th districts."
