PLEASE VOTE NOW 2020

 

Make your voice count and be heard. VOTE NOW in the USA Presidential Election. It is important to participate and exercise your right to choose.

As @VisitLA4Locals says: ‘You may not love the choices, but you don’t have to. It’s not your soul mate or life partner. It is your obligation as a citizen to take part in the process. Speak up and make your voice heard!
If you live in LA County you can find a list of official drop boxes (and also how to vote by mail) at
https://locator.lavote.net 🗳

From my editor, Carmen Rios (#vbadgrl): “Looking for critical guidance in battleground states? Check out @v4eusa. Looking for answers in los Angeles? I’m using the @blmlosangeles guide to fill out my ballot. Have questions about Voter ID laws? Ask @thevoteriders. Need to make a plan? go to iwillvote.com.

More from @VisitLA4Locals: “This year, voters in LA County are able to go to ANY Vote Center and no longer need to be assigned to a specific polling place 🎉. In addition to the official drop boxes open 24-hours a day, 118 vote centers are now open where you can cast your ballot (or drop off a pre-filled one.)

When I lived in @westwoodvillage I loved voting in person at the @luxesunsetblvdhotel. They were so welcoming and it was definitely more unique than a garage or church! When I moved back to the valley, I was a little sad not to be able to go there anymore to vote. This year, voters in LA County are able to go to ANY Vote Center and no longer need to be assigned to a specific polling place 🎉. In addition to the official drop boxes open 24-hours a day, 118 vote centers are now open where you can cast your ballot (or drop off a pre-filled one.)

  1. Government leaders and those in power only listen to Voice, strong Voice, very strong Voice. Without it they will remain dead silent even if it’s the end of the world! So campaign by voting and making your Voice heard.
