Greetings Everyone!

I am sending this e-mail to solicit your support to become or recruit volunteers for the upcoming LAUSD Public School Choice Advisory Vote. We need to staff each of our 30 Advisory Vote Voting Centers with 8-10 volunteers – that means we need 300 individuals! This e-mail will provide information on how to become or recruit volunteers for the Advisory Vote overseen by the League of Women Voters.  Thank you in advance for your support!
