How to #BikeTheVote

Want to #BikeTheVote this election? LACBC is your source for election information and candidate positions on biking and walking. You can #BikeTheVote by:

  1. Register to vote! The deadline to register for the March 3rd election has already passed (on February 17th). However, make sure you register for the run-off election in May here: http://registertovote.ca.gov
  2. Educate yourself about the candidates and items on the ballot! As a 501(c)3, we cannot endorse candidates, but we will provide resources for you through the election season including candidate surveys and information about candidate forums where you can learn more about where candidates stand on important bike and livability issues. Updates are posted below.
  3. Spread the word and get your friends to vote!
  4. Vote on election day (or by mail by the appropriate deadline)! Find your polling location, and make sure you bike the vote.
