Based on the quasi-classical Eilenberger theory, we investigate the magnetic field dependence of order-parameters and spin-polarized local density of states (LDOS) in the vortex lattice state of helical p-wave superconductors. The spin-polarized LDOS is induced by the vorticity coupling to the chirality of up-spin pair or down-spin pair, even when Knight shift does not change. We clarify the instability of the helical p-wave state at high field, and that the spin-polarized LDOS shows the unique behaviors of the helical p-wave state.
