This is no ordinary election. Not because of the candidates or propositions, but because we are facing a global pandemic that continues to have a big impact on Black, Latino & AAPI communities. It’s important for every voter to take the necessary precautions to stay healthy and ensure that your vote is counted.
When you vote, remember that every vote counts! Create awareness with your family and friends and share resources that ensure that every person in your community knows their options.
The Los Angeles County Registrar has made it very easy to get all the information you need to create options and know exactly where you can go to vote, how to track your ballot, and even check your registration.
