Our Weekly Voters’ Guide to a most consequential election
Votes could change societal dynamics
OW Staff Writer | 10/22/2020, 11:05 a.m.
Election Day has turned into an “election month,” as ballots were mailed out the week of Oct. 5 to all registered voters in California. Perhaps you have already filled out your ballot and placed the sealed and signed envelope in a post office box or official ballot box. Or maybe you have already completed a ballot at a local Voting Center. Either way, wear that “I voted” sticker with pride, my friend, but be aware that the final determination on winners and losers this election season may not be known for weeks.
When the ballot counting gets underway, it’s hoped that enough Black voters utilize their rights and play a pivotal role in determining the future structure of the city, county, state and nation. There are a number of items on the ballot which deserve readers’ attention. OW staff has gathered information in this guide to assist voters through the process.
Our Weekly endorsements are featured here. Make sure to make your vote count and submit your ballot on or before November 3. For information on voting by mail, drop boxes or becoming an election worker, visit LAvote.net.
