VOTING - April 12, 10am - 4pm

Silver Lake Neighborhood Council Elections

Why does it matter? City Hall can see engaged neighborhoods by how many of us are voting. This can carry weight in future decisions. We want them to know who is voting, and from whom they can expect a turn out at the polls when they are up for reelection. 

Where to go, what to do, when to do it:

Saturday, April 12, 10 to 4

Micheltorena Elementary School

1511 Micheltorena Street

Silver Lake: Do you have a story for KPCC's First Person series?
