LOS ANGELES -- (KTLA) -- Just in time for Los Angeles’ runoff municipal election Tuesday, some residents have received letters listing the voting records of their neighbors in a purported attempt to turn out the vote.
One letter provided to KTLA had no return address but bore a logo for the “California Voter Awareness Project,” which has no apparent online presence. The envelope was labeled in red "Important Taxpayer Information Enclosed."
“Why do so many people in Los Angeles fail to vote?” the letter read. “This year, we’re taking a new approach. We’re sending this mailing to you, your friends, your neighbors, your colleagues at work, and your community members to publicize who does and does not vote.”
