Los Angeles County Democratic Party Chair (LACDP) and California Democratic Party Vice Chair Eric C. Bauman released the following statement on Secretary of State Alex Padilla’s call for ideas to increase voter participation in California.
“LACDP is thrilled to throw its support behind Secretary of State Alex Padilla’s #BoostTheVote campaign. After an election with the lowest voter turnout in more than seventy years, Secretary Padilla has created a forum to solicit the best ideas on how to get more voters engaged in our democracy to make sure that the voices of all people in California are heard.
“Civic participation begins with us, and who better than the Democratic Party to revitalize voter participation in our government?
“To begin this undertaking, Secretary Padilla has asked all of us to share what we would do to increase voter turnout through social media, using #BoostTheVote, or by going to www.alex-padilla.com/boost-the-vote, to share our ideas. I implore all of you to contribute to this important effort.”
