ID Requirements for May 21 Elections

The Eagle Rock Neighborhood Council election on May 21, 2016 is open to everyone who lives, works or owns real property in our neighborhood, and also to those who declare a stake in the neighborhood as a Community Interest Stakeholder.

Everyone must register to vote for each Neighborhood Council Election season – even if you’re already registered to vote in national elections or have voted in Neighborhood Council elections in the past. All community members can register at the polling place on election day.

In order to vote, you must bring the following to the polls on May 21:

  1. A photo ID (Driver’s License, Passport, CA ID card, or any other photo ID) that establishes your identity.
  2. Documentation that shows that you live, work, or own property in Eagle Rock, or have status as a Community Interest Stakeholder. (In some cases, your photo ID might cover both requirements.) Whatever you provide must show an address within the ERNC boundaries shown on this map. See below for a list of accepted IDs & qualifying documents, and for special rules for Community Interest Stakeholders.

EAGLE ROCK RESIDENTS:

  • A photo ID with your Eagle Rock home address on it (anywhere in 90041, or the parts of 90065 and 90042 shown on this map). That’s all you need!

EAGLE ROCK RESIDENTS  WITHOUT  ID:

  • If you live in Eagle Rock but do not have a photo ID with an Eagle Rock address, then you can bring your non-Eagle Rock picture ID and one starred* item with your Eagle Rock home / property address on it, from the list below. (If you don’t have a photo ID, then bring two of the below, including one starred* item):

  • The ERNC has one “Community Interest Stakeholder” seat on the board, which means that people who don’t fit into any of the Stakeholder categories above can still vote for that one seat — and only that seat — in the elections. A Community Interest Stakeholder is defined as “a person who affirms a substantial and ongoing participation within the neighborhood council’s boundaries and who may be in a community organization such as, but not limited to, educational, non-profit and/or religious organizations.” The rules about this are so lengthy that we are reproducing the Dept. of Neighborhood Empowerment language about it here, verbatim. (Note that this seat is uncontested this year.)
