Election Central

Election Central is the LA Election Watch Party.

Election Central is free, open to the public, and will feature drinks and food for all to enjoy.

We have a great track record of LA Politics VIPs attending this event in the past including city, county, and state elected officials & staff, commissioners, lobbyists, special interest groups, and various other stakeholders. As a non-partisan entity, we attract a wide variety of people and perspectives to the same space, unlike partisan campaign parties held on election day.
