Why It's Important to Vote in Local Elections

LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

We just caught wind of this fun but poignant video by the Young Progressive Majority. It drives the point home on why it's important to participate in local elections. Basically, the problems of Los Angeles are Los Angeles' problems, not necessarily just President Obama and the feds. So if you want to be involved on making your home a better place, then you should vote today (or whenever your local election is) if you already haven't.

Polling locations close tonight at 8 p.m. tonight. If you don't know where you vote, plug in your address here. And more info regarding today can be found on today's earlier post.
