Why L.A. is Voting

On the Oct. 27 edition of the Reporter Roundup, reporters from diverse newsrooms across Southern California discuss the issues driving people to vote in the upcoming election. 

León Krauze, news anchor at Univision, says the coronavirus is the leading concern for Latino voters, while climate change is an immediate concern for all California voters. 

In local races, conversations are centered around race and criminal justice reform, says Libby Denkmann, who has been covering the elections for months. 

It’s difficult to peg the issues that are important to the LGBTQ community because nobody is asking, according to Phillip Zonkel. He identifies the most pressing concerns as intersectional, including homelessness, housing affordability, immigration and racial justice reform. 

T'Erra Hill, a student at California State University, Northridge, talks about the issues driving young people to vote and the conversations they’re having at home with their families.
