Official Statement

LACDP Chair Mark J Gonzalez responds to 
LA County Board of Supervisor's Vote on Permanent Vote-By-Mail
LOS ANGELES, CA --  In response to the LA County BOS vote today on permanent vote-by-mail across the county, Los Angeles County Democratic Party Chair Mark J. Gonzalez released the following statement: 

“Voting is a fundamental right, and one that should be accessible to all eligible voters here in LA County and across the nation. I’m proud that our LA County Supervisors have voted unanimously on Supervisor Hahn and Supervisor Kuehl’s proposal to send a vote-by-mail ballot to all voters in all elections, starting this November. While Donald Trump and Republicans are doing everything they can to suppress the vote, our  LA County leaders along with Secretary Padilla are leading the way for what should become the future of voting in this country. As we helped lead this charge before the primary, we look forward to working with the LA County Registrar’s office and leading get-out-the-vote efforts this fall to make sure that ALL voters know their options of how and when to vote this November."
