ERNC Elections Update!
Today the ERNC was informed by the City of L.A. that this Saturday’s elections will not be “self-affirmation,” as they had previously announced. Instead, voters will be asked for “acceptable documentation” to prove that they are Eagle Rock Stakeholders.
What’s an Eagle Rock Stakeholder? In general, it’s someone who lives, works, or owns property or a business in Eagle Rock.
What’s “acceptable documentation”? It’s any one of the below, as long as it shows both your name and your Eagle Rock address:
- Driver’s License
- CA Identification Card
- Any picture ID (work, school, gym, club, credit card, etc.)
If you don’t have one of the above, then you can provide two of the following, showing an Eagle Rock address where appropriate:
Social Security Card
Residential lease or rental agreement
Los Angeles County property tax bill
Mortgage statement or rent receipt
Home owner’s or renter’s insurance documentation
Current utility bill
Home Owners’ Association bill
Letter from landlord confirming renter/tenant status
Mail with your name and home or business address
Letter from local Neighborhood Watch
Other similar documentation proving occupancy/tenancy
Business lease or rental agreement
Commercial mortgage statement or lease receipt
Current City of LA Business license
Personal business card
Printed advertisement or webpage of business
Letter from employer on business letterhead verifying employment
California (CA) State Board of Equalization resale certificate
Pay check or stub
Letter/documentation from Business Improvement District (BID) or Chamber of Commerce
Billing statements from vendors
Other similar documentation proving employment or business ownership
If you forget your documentation, you can still vote — just fill out a Provisional Ballot, and you’ll have 3 days to email the information in to the City Clerk.
If you’re not an Eagle Rock Stakeholder, you may still be able to vote as a Community Interest Stakeholder. Details can be found in the Empower LA Elections Manual, at this link.
