California Governor Gavin Newsom visited Dodger Stadium recently to congratulate the Dodgers on their World Series win, and to help spread the word about voting at the ballpark.
Also while he was there, he visited the World Series trophy with some of the club’s front office members.
While the Dodger love was an added bonus, his real reason for being at the stadium was to push to people to vote in the Presidential election.
Suppress the virus. Not the vote.
As of last night in CA: 9,465,631 ballots cast.

Newsom and California Secretary of State Alex Padilla were accompanied by the legendary Dodgers pitcher Fernando Valenzuela as they asked Angelinos to vote.
If a former Mayor of San Francisco can visit the Dodger Stadium — anything is possible.

Dodger Stadium is home to one of the more beautiful voting backdrops in southern California. While there is more information about how to vote at Chavez Ravine in the link below, voters can still vote early on Monday and vote on election Tuesday in person.
Note that with the Dodgers World Series win and the COVID testing taking place in the parking lot at the stadium, there may be a good amount of traffic off Vin Scully Avenue so plan accordingly.
