Last time I wrote, I expressed concern that our Council had voted against allowing County ballot collection boxes in the City of Torrance. The feedback I received from you was overwhelming- dozens of residents replied expressing their desire to vote via a secure ballot box due to their concerns with the postal mail or in person voting due to covid. Seeing this, I kept fighting to have the Council reconsider the previous decision, making an impassioned speech and reading several of your emails into the record. I’m now proud to report, that by a 5-2 vote, the Council reversed course and there will be a ballot box option for Torrance residents!
