November 2nd is a big election for Democrats, Republicans, gubernatorial candidates, marijuana, state parks, climate law, the state budget and so much more. To say the least, groups want residents to arm themselves with the right to vote. Today in L.A. County, there will be 11 "drive thru" sites open through midnight (that started at 8 a.m.) where you can register in person. The sites are run by the county in collaboration with various nonprofits like Voto Latino, League of Women Voters of Los Angeles County and the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO) Educational Fund.

“In these tough times our residents are hard at work keeping Los Angeles County and California moving, we want to work just as hard to be sure that registering to vote is just as easy as a quick stop at the supermarket—a quick pit stop on the way home,” said Dean Logan, the Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk, whose department estimates that around 1.5 million eligible voters are not registered to vote. Now that's probably enough to turn any race!
