Here's How To Report Any Problems You Have On Election Day

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

Just because Hillary Clinton will win deep-blue California in a landslide, it doesn't mean you shouldn't go out there and vote. There's over a dozen ballot propositions, a U.S. Senate race, and some fairly major measures for the city of Los Angeles concerning the future of homelessness, housing and mass transportation.While Donald Trump has no chance of winning California, meaning his charges of voting fraud aren't applicable to the Left Coast, that's not stopping some people from juuuuuust making sure, apparently. As The Press-Enterprise reports, Veterans for Trump and the Heritage Foundation's Election Integrity Project plan on having 8,000 observers throughout the state to monitor the election.

Of course, voting fraud in the United States is extremely rare, and the decentralized election system all but precludes any chances of this election being "rigged," as Fuckface von Clownstick has claimed over and over again.

THAT SAID—if you do have any Election Day problems or irregularities, officials at both the local and state level have ways of letting you report any irregularities.

The office of Alex Padilla, California Secretary of State, has set up a hotline in both English and Spanish where, "Voters can call to ask election-related questions, to file complaints, or to confidentially report potential election fraud or voter intimidation." The number is (800) 345-VOTE (8683) for English, and (800) 232-VOTA (8682) for Spanish.

The Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder can be reached at (562) 466-1310, and the California Democratic Party has also set up a hotline at 877-321-VOTE (8683) for voters to report problems.

We're also interested in hearing from you if you had/are having trouble voting, or if you witnessed polling place problems. You can email us tips here.
