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.

In Los Angeles County, there are 689,307 people who choose to vote by mail permanently. Then add those of the 4.3 million total registered voters who choose to do it, but haven't signed up for the permanent program. If you're not already automatically getting ballots, you can, starting next Monday and through October 28th, can request a vote-by-mail ballot for the November 2nd election. To make it a permanent thing, just check the “PERMANENT VOTE BY MAIL STATUS” box on your next vote-by-mail ballot or download and fill out a Permanent Vote by Mail application (.pdf).

“Voting by Mail is an easy, convenient option to choose. You can never be too busy to Vote By Mail,” said Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk Dean Logan. Oregon is a big believer in this -- it's the only state that where the only option to vote is by mail.
