Election 2012

Make Your Endorsements, the L.A. Streetsblog Caucus

9:46 AM PDT on November 2, 2012

Next week, Downtowners, Angelenos, Californians and Americans will head to the polls for the 2012 General Election. There's a slew of local ballot initiatives on the ballot in addition to the main event. But why wait until Tuesday to make your voice heard, when you can do so right now in addition to at the ballot box.

We're polling Streetsblog readers on four votes: the Downtown Streetcar, Prop. 37, Measure J and the presidential race. Tuesday morning, we'll post the results of the polling and publish the best comments for or against each Measure. Vote early, vote often (and vote again on Tuesday).

We've done a lot of work on Measure J in the past week, and we'll be posting a major piece on Monday looking at the arguments for and against the transit tax extension.

Brigham Yen makes the case for why Downtowners should vote for a fee that would allow construction of the Downtown L.A. Streetcar. In addition to boostering the project, Yen also does a great job explaining the vote.

We've barely covered Prop. 37. Because we've been doing more public health writing, we're still interested in your thoughts. The proposition would require labeling of foods that contain Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO's.) L.A. Weekly does a good breakdown of what the proposition does, and to find out more about a GMO, click here.

We can't even do a "reader's endorsement" for the presidential race, but it wouldn't be a poll without asking the big question.
