The Los Angeles LGBT Center urges residents of Los Angeles to vote in the election on March 7, 2017 and recommends a YES on county Measure H and a NO on city Measure S. The deadline to register is February 22. Online registration can be completed here.

Measure H - YES: You’ll help address the growing problem of homelessness in Los Angeles county, which disproportionately impacts LGBT youth, by increasing the sales tax just one-fourth of a cent. Measure H will help fund mental health services, substance abuse treatment, health care, education, job training, affordable housing and much more.

Measure S – NO: The measure would ban future housing and building initiatives in the city of Los Angeles at a time when the city is facing a growing affordability crisis. LGBT people, from youth to seniors, experience disproportionate poverty and without affordable housing, many are left homeless; voting NO on Measure S will block this ban.
