WHAT TO BRING WITH YOU ON ELECTION DAY
Please be aware that in order to vote, you will need to bring proof of your stakeholder status to this election (see details below.) Please also note that at Neighborhood Council elections, voters always fill out a short registration form at the polls before casting their ballots. You are not pre-registered to vote even if you are already registered to vote in national elections – or even if you’ve voted in a Neighborhood Council election previously.
What to bring with you to the polls: documentation proving: 1) who you are; 2) that you’re of voting age for this election (which is 14+); and 3) that you are eligible to vote for each seat that represents you as a stakeholder.
If you live within the Neighborhood Council boundaries, a photo ID with your birthdate and a local address on it will be all you need to qualify to vote in this election. If you are not a local resident, or don’t have an ID with these features, many other types of documents are accepted as proof of stakeholder status. See a list of examples here: http://bit.ly/NCdocumentation
MEET THE CANDIDATES
Please note: only certified candidates (marked with a star) will appear on your ballot
ABOUT NEIGHBORHOOD COUNCIL ELECTIONS
Your Neighborhood Council is your community’s voice at City Hall. Together, LA’s 99 Neighborhood Councils form the grassroots level of the Los Angeles city government. Unlike other municipal, state, or federal elections, Neighborhood Council elections are open to anyone who is part of the fabric of daily life in a community. A Council’s stakeholders include those who live, work, or own property or a business there. Also included are “community interest stakeholders,” who have another type of ongoing, substantial involvement within a Council’s boundaries, such as students (or parents of students) at a school, or members of a church.
Voters and board members need not be US citizens or legal residents to qualify. Participation is also open to the formerly incarcerated.
