Show up this Sunday and get your politic on!
ELECTION DAY is on SUNDAY✹MARCH 26th, 10am-6pm.
Here is a message from Venice Neighborhood Council!
Now is your opportunity to have a say in Venice! The terms of all twenty-one Venice Neighborhood Council Board members are expiring and every position is up for grabs. Over fifty of your friends and fellow Venetians are vying for positions on the VNC Board. On Sunday, March 26, 2023, the Venice NC will hold its biennial elections at Oakwood Recreation Center with the LosAngeles City Clerk conducting the election with polls open from 10am to 6pm.
Whether you live, work, own property, or have a substantial and ongoing participation in Venice, you are a VNC “stakeholder” and eligible to vote on March 26th. No pre-registration is necessary, but election rules state: “Stakeholders must affirm their stakeholder status by completing a Stakeholder Registration Form” which will be available at the Polling Place on the day of the election. Every voter must verify their eligibility before receiving a ballot – so DON’T FORGET YOUR ID and evidence that shows you’re a Venice stakeholder!
Over the past several years, through the hard work and dedication of the VNC and its stakeholders, the VNC has become an important part of Los Angeles City government. The VNC’s recommendations are closely watched, and more often than not, are followed by our City Councilmember, the City Council and the Mayor.
Community involvement in the VNC has grown to an all time high, with hundreds of people routinely attending Town Hall meetings and thousands casting votes in the past three elections. That’s important, because the VNC’s credibility (and its voice at City Hall) rests on our election turnout and stakeholder participation.
So it’s imperative that Venetians vote on March 26th. Voting sends a strong message to the City Council that Venice is as engaged and involved as ever, and that we demand to be heard by City Hall. For those who are voting by mail, Ballots must be postmarked by March 25th. Completed Ballots may also be submitted at the Polls. Further voting information can be found on the venicenc.org/elections webpage.
