In their bid to boost voter turnout in next month’s election, the neighborhood council representing Los Feliz is not only appealing to residents’ sense of civic duty and pride but also their love for discount and deals. Those who cast a ballot in the Oct. 6 Greater Griffith Park Neighborhood Council Election will be entitled to discounts-including 20% off restaurant meals-from some participating merchants under a deal between the neighborhood council and the Los Feliz Improvement Business District. Meanwhile, merchants will display posters promoting the election.
“This year we’re doing something new,” said Robert Menz, the GGPNC’s Business Interests Representative in a statement. “Numerous local businesses are offering discounts, freebies and incentives to any customer with a ‘Los Feliz Votes’ Sticker on Election Day. And you can only get a sticker by voting.”
The goal is to get at least 2012 people to vote during this year’s election, which would top the 1,500 ballots cast in the 2010 election. A list of participating businesses will be posted on the council website and a list will be available at the polling place on election day. Click here for election day information.
