Los Angeles Votes ~ Photos From the Field on Election Day 2018

[dropcap size=big]L[/dropcap].A. Taco is in the field making sure everyone that wants to vote in this beautiful, diverse, sprawling metropolis is getting the chance. So far we've found younger people, grandparents, moms, dads, working class people, white collar folks, families, and so many people of diverse backgrounds all exercising their individual right to vote. Someone even brought their little dog.

We will keep this space updated throughout the day with any developments.  Polls open at 7 am and stay open until 8 pm.

Henry Tong, of Alhambra, noticed a much bigger push for the younger generation to vote. He said it was more than the general election, especially on social media. As California is mostly a blue state, he feels the propositions are the most important issues to pay attention to locally.

Danielle and Frank Gomez of City Terrace said they voted against Prop 8. ”It's very important that we vote and do what we gotta do to make sure that we make America blue again," Danielle said. But as a dialysis patient, she was most impassioned about Prop 8. She voted against it because she is concerned about overcrowding. She said that the passage of prop 8 might cause clinics to shut down, furthering the overcrowding problem.
