At Arts for LA, we truly believe that there is nothing more important than having the arts represented in all areas of civic life. The pinnacle of civic engagement is how we come together around elections.
In the past, Arts for LA partnered with the Los Angeles County Registrar Recorder/ County Clerk's (RR/CC) Office to encourage arts and culture sites to serve as polling places for the November 2017 elections. Now, Arts for LA has been selected as one of 14 community organizations to partner with the RR/CC on the Vote Center Placement Project (VCPP), which will transition LA County from the one-day voting model with assigned polling places to a system of open voting at Vote Centers located across the County. Arts for LA is working specifically to help identify accessible and convenient vote centers in the Downtown Los Angeles area.
Voting is about to get easier in Los Angeles County, and you can be a part of the process to help decide when, how, and where we vote.

Arts for LA is the only arts organization represented on the Vote Center Placement Project (VCPP) and, as such, the only ones representing our collective interests -- making sure that arts and culture are not only part of what we vote for, but also where we gather to cast our votes.
We encourage you to spread the word about the Vote Center Placement Project (VCPP) to your extended networks to ensure that the arts have a voice at the table at all the community conversations about where vote centers will be located in the 2020 election.
