As a Knight Cities Challenge Award recipient for its Place-make the Vote concept, City Fabrick in collaboration with Long Beach Rising! and the Long Beach City Clerk will install a temporary public plaza next to the polling stations at the 4th Street Senior Center for the Primary Elections on Tuesday, according to an announcement released today.

“This is an exciting opportunity to collaborate with new partners all on a common cause to expand civic engagement in under-represented communities,” said Brian Ulaszewski, executive director and principal of City Fabrick.

The pop-up plaza will be activated by art, entertainment, furniture, food and people, and serve to visually attract residents to the polling site. Through social interactions and civic engagement, the Place-make the Vote idea hopes to engage more community members in the voting process.
