Los Angeles County requires an informed, engaged, and involved society able to participate in their community and in their government. Arts Vote is how we achieve this goal.
Los Angeles County requires an informed, engaged, and involved society able to participate in their community and in their government. Participation in the arts is a crucial catalyst in fostering engaged residents, developing opportunities for public debate, volunteerism, and lifelong learning. Arts organizations and arts supporters play a critical role in advancing the arts in the region.
The ArtsVote Campaign is a multi-strategy campaign designed to engage residents, provide opportunities for public discourse, bolster volunteerism, and provide avenues for arts organizations to show their #ArtsVote power.
We achieve this through:
- Arts and Culture Candidate Surveys
- Arts and Cultural Candidate Forums
- Arts and Cultural Polling Places: Registering polling places, poll worker training
- Organization Training: H-Election, Non-profit electoral rights
- Legislation Tracking
- Get Out The Vote promotion
