Parking Restrictions Eased for Election Day

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls.

As City of Los Angeles tradition goes, minor parking infractions will not be enforced on Election Day within one block of a polling place. That doesn't mean you can park like an asshole, but you can park in street cleaning areas, permit parking streets, meters don't have to be fed and time limits at meters will not be enforced. “Now there’s one fewer excuse for not voting,” Mayor Villaraigosa said in a statement. “We are making it easier for people throughout the City to vote, and I encourage everyone to go to the polls next Tuesday and make their voices heard.”
