Resolution in Support of Consolidating LA City’s Elections with California Statewide Elections

Whereas, the Democratic Party is in favor of full participation of the electorate in all elections; and

Whereas, the City of Los Angeles’ election schedule results in extraordinarily low participation in Los Angeles City, school board and college board elections; and

Whereas, democracy is best served when the greatest possible number of voters are engaged;

Therefore let it be resolved, that the Los Angeles County Democratic Party is in favor of the concept of consolidating LA City, School Board and College Board elections with California statewide elections.

Therefore let it be further resolved that we communicate these desires to LA City elected, political and community leaders.
