On March 7 get out and vote. Don’t make excuses about you being too busy or feeling like your vote doesn’t matter. Don’t be a pendeja or pendejo… that’s pendejx for people in Boyle Heights.

So, go vote, take advantage of your 2-hour break, then walk proudly back into your job- like the descarados that you are, knowing that your “I voted” sticker will give you a pass.
You already know there are too many damn initiatives on the ballot and you’re too damn busy to learn about them all. #HoodDigest got you! So, grab a lapiz, cafe, pan dulce, and brace yourself!
