VILLARAIGOSA CAMPAIGN CALLS ON LOS ANGELES COUNTY REGISTRAR TO KEEP VOTE CENTERS OPEN THROUGH FRIDAY, JUNE 8 AFTER REPORTS OF VOTERS BEING OMITTED FROM VOTER ROLLS

Los Angeles, CA – The Villaraigosa for Governor campaign is calling on Los Angeles Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk Dean Logan to keep vote centers open through Friday, June 8 after reports that 118,522 voters were omitted from the rolls in at least 1,530 polling locations.

“Anyone who is turned away should be allowed to return to a vote center and make sure their vote is counted,” said Campaign Manager Pat Dennis. “This election is too important, and every voice should be heard.”

The Villaraigosa campaign is also calling on California Secretary of State Alex Padilla to investigate how this unprecedented number of voters were omitted, as well as calling for vote centers to remain open in any other county with reported errors or omissions.
