WeHo to Host Voter Registration Pop-Ups in Honor of National Voter Registration Day

Lace up your running shoes because it’s time to exercise… your civic duty, that is!

In honor of National Voter Registration day Tuesday, Sept. 25, the City of West Hollywood announced voter registration pop up events next month to encourage more community participation in for the General Election on November 6.

“Every year millions of Americans find themselves unable to vote because they miss a registration deadline, don’t update their registration, or aren’t sure how to register,” WeHo Mayor John J. Duran said. “Make no mistake, this next election may very well be the most important vote we will cast in our lifetimes — let’s be certain that everyone who is eligible to vote is properly registered and then casts their vote on November 6.”

The voter registration pop-ups will take place on Monday, Oct. 8 and Mon., Oct. 22 during the Helen Albert Farmers’ Market at Plummer Park. The voter registration deadline is Monday, Oct. 22.

According to the Human Rights Campaign website, there are 9.4 million LGBTQ+ registered voters in the United States. Roughly 81 percent of eligible LGBTQ+ voters across the U.S. vote, compared to 58 percent of eligible voters overall.

Voter registration forms may be obtained at West Hollywood City Hall during regular hours. The City’s elections page, www.weho.org/elections,  provides detailed election information and links to the California Secretary of State’s Voter Registration page, the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder’s website and links to find specific information about how to apply to vote by mail, polling places and sample ballots. Residents can also find their polling place by visiting www.lavote.net/locator.
