“We are thrilled to partner with the LA Clippers and the Forum. This is a slam dunk for civic engagement and voter enfranchisement,” said Dean C. Logan, Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk.
“Hosting a Vote Center at the Forum ensures Inglewood and the surrounding communities have a safe and positive in-person voting experience at one of L.A.’s historic landmarks. In uncertain times, it is collaborations such as this that demonstrate the spirit of community and the strength of our democracy.”

The Clippers and the Forum will also unveil the LA Voters Win platform at www.LAVotersWin.com to help voters check their registration status, explore what’s on their local ballot, research policy and make a plan for how to vote.
“You have undoubtedly heard the voices of our players, coaches and staff, passionately and powerfully urging Americans to register and exercise their right to vote,” said Gillian Zucker, Clippers President of Business Operations.
“We are dedicated to the same cause: fighting voter suppression and empowering all citizens to determine meaningful progress, for this generation and generations to come. Inglewood is the home of the Forum and will soon be the home of the L.A. Clippers. Now, it will also be a home for local voters, to come together and help shape a brighter future.”

County Registrar-Recorder, and the California Secretary of State announced that Dodger Stadium will also serve as a vote center for the upcoming presidential general election.MORE NEWS: Possible Thunderstorms Brewing Above Inland Empire, Mountain Areas
