Tuesday 2:30p – If you are in Election Precinct Number 9000272A and you are supposed to vote at the polling place at St. Brendan Church, that Precinct is being re-directed to Wilshire United Methodist Church at 4350 Wilshire Boulevard (at Plymouth and Wilshire – next to The Ebell).
Just a heads up…this appears to be an unannounced change. We witnessed the Sample Ballots of multiple voters – the Ballot mailed to the homes of registered voters – at Wilshire United Methodist with St. Brendan Church, St. Francis Room listed as their Polling Place. When they showed up at their original Polling site, a sign redirected them to the new Polling site.
Also, we checked on the LA County Registrar site – www.LAVote,net/locator. That site also directs voters to the wrong Polling Site.
A change of Polling Site might not be a big deal if you have a car and have the time to adjust to the new information. But it could be a big deal if you walked, or took a bus, or tried to vote on your lunch hour. It could also be a big inconvenience for the elderly.
The affected Precinct covers the following area…Rossmore Avenue from Rosewood, south to Beverly Boulevard; Beverly Boulevard east to Arden Boulevard; Arden south to 2nd Streeet; 2nd Street east to Beachwood; Beachwood north to 1st Street/Plymouth Boulevard; Plymouth north to Beverly Boulevard; Beverly west to Gower Street; Gower north to Rosewood; Rosewood west to Rossmore.

If you have friends in this affected area…you might send them a text or email.
Polls close today at 8p.
