How to Vote
What’s new this year?
- The minimum age to vote is now 16 years old.
- Neighborhood Council elections are going entirely Vote-By-Mail this year. There will be NO in person voting for Neighborhood Council elections.
- You must request a Vote-By-Mail ballot before the election. There will be no same-day registration or ballot pick-up.
You MUST apply to receive a ballot – this is different from your voter registration in federal, state, and other local elections.
Who can vote?
Anyone over 16 who has a stake in Toluca Lake is eligible to vote! That means if you live, work, own real property, or declare a stake in the neighborhood by participating in a Community Organization in Toluca Lake, you have a stake in our community and you’re eligible to vote.
To qualify, a Community Organization must have continuously maintained a physical street address for not less than one year in Toluca Lake and performs ongoing activities and operations that benefit the neighborhood. A for-profit entity shall not qualify as a Community Organization.
