Want to #BikeTheVote for the November 8th election? LACBC is your source for election information and candidate positions on biking and walking. You can #BikeTheVote by:
- Registering to vote. registertovote.ca.gov.
- Educating 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. Check back here for updates.
- Spreading the word and getting your friends to vote.
- Knowing your voting rights! Your employer is required by law to give you time off to vote. You can vote if your name isn’t on the list using a provisional ballot. You can vote after polls close, as long as you’re in line. You can change your vote if you make a mistake — just ask for a new ballot. You can take your vote-by-mail ballot to any polling location (and you can trade it for a new one if you make a mistake on it).
- Voting on Tuesday, November 8th! Find your polling location, and make sure you bike the vote. Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
