Say It Again

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. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

The months of overhyped media coverage are finally over, and today is the day.

No matter who you are voting for, LAist encourages everyone to get out and vote. Take a friend or two. Bring a book or an iPod to amuse you in line. If you are planning to vote with a provisional ballot, be sure to bring ID with the address that qualifies you to vote at that polling place. If you don't know where your polling place is or how late it's open, look it up.

And most of all, if you feel your vote is in jeopardy or that you are being denied any of your rights before, during or after you vote, call 1-866-OUR VOTE.

The hotline was set up by the Election Protection Coalition, a group formed to guard against attempts to disenfranchise voters. The EPC is expecting as many as 25,000 volunteers—5,000 of them lawyers—to be on hand, handling calls and providing assistance to voters, putting people in touch with volunteers in their area.

So get out there and vote, LA. Your little black dots matter.
