Venice Arts, 1702 Lincoln Blvd, has been selected as both a polling place for the California Primary Elections, and as a partner for LA2050’s #PartyatthePolls, an initiative meant to show the importance of civic engagement.
Local non-profit, Venice Arts, is one of eight organizations in Los Angeles participating in #PartyatthePolls happening today, Tuesday June 7, from 9am-8pm.
“We will be holding our own “party” in true Venice Arts fashion called #VeniceVotes, which features an interactive photo booth where people can have their photo taken and their voices heard,” says Venice Arts Marketing & Communications Associate, Chelsea Chenelle.
All photos will be uploaded to the Venice Arts website. Even non-voters are welcome to visit the space to snap a selfie. The #VeniceVotes project will become a living album of portraits that speaks to the uniqueness of Venice and the vital importance of civic engagement.

“So why not earmark some of the state’s current $21 billion budget surplus for building new housing where land is cheap, fees low and regulations minimal? That would be the Central Valley and some desert areas of Southern California,” writes Tom Elias in his latest California Focus column.
