Voter groups spearheading daylong registration drive Tuesday

September 24, 2012 | 12:58 pm

A broad coalition of groups across Los Angeles County is sponsoring a daylong series of events Tuesday aimed at getting eligible citizens to register to vote in the Nov. 6 elections.

Black Eyed Peas fans can hear Taboo join with local officials at a noon news conference at Cal State L.A., and commuters can register at Union Station downtown and aboard Metrolink trains.

Starting at 6 p.m.,  rapper and radio personality Maya Jupiter will headline a National Voter Registration Day at MacArthur Park that will feature food vendors and local artists.

Several organizations, along with the county registrar-recorder's office, are leading the daylong events. The groups include Voto Latino, Rock the Vote, the League of Women Voters of Los Angeles, the California Participation Project, California Common Cause and others.

Similar voter registration events will be taking place throughout the country on the same day. For more details and a list of events, go to www.nationalvoterregistrationday.org.
