How about a poll that asks, “Do you believe many non-resident Venetians were asked to vote for NOPD’s?”

Really this poll is just for fun and totally meaningless. Anyone, no matter where they live, can vote so it has no relevance. There was a real vote on this issue and the winner was those in favor of OPDs. I still cannot fathom while folks are against what is a totally democratic process . . . people on each block get to vote on this and it takes a super majority (2/3) to have it implemented. The folks that are impacted by these parking issues can vote yes those that are not can vote against. The yearly cost, $15, is minimal and allows one to park overnight on any OPD street even if the one they live on is not.

The Venice Neighborhood Council will use this poll to justify what they do, so it matters. The rejection of first time voters is likely a glitch in the software that determines voters by the source of the attempt to vote.

It’s also true that the VNC is dominated by individuals who have no sense of duty to represent the interests of all the residents of the Venice community, and that is a drag. There is a general attitude in the City government, in the West side political establishment, amongst of clique of individuals in Venice that the most of the people who live in the Venice community have no rights that anyone is obliged to respect and it is reflected in the attitudes of many members of the VNC with the issues that they press for and don’t.

I suspect that all of the neighborhood councils in Los Angeles are made up of advocates for special interests in the Districts who don’t care anything about the all the residents in those Districts, and may serve the political interests of the Council people but not the vast majority of the people who live in Los Angeles. May be all of the Neighborhood Councils should be abolished.

All you need to qualify for voting is an ip address. As long as you have multiple Ip addresses, people can vote as many times as they want and vote from anywhere in the world.
