  • If you are not registered to vote yet, then you can go to a Vote Center from Oct 24th – Nov. 3rd and register to vote & cast your ballot there.

  • All registered voters in LA County who register before the Monday, Oct 19th, 2020 deadline should automatically receive a mail-in ballot. 
    • We strongly urge residents to vote using their mail-in ballot, since there were challenges during the March primary where in-person voting centers had very long lines and some residents didn’t even have the chance to vote.
    • If you are not yet registered to vote, then you will have to vote in-person (check the “Voting In-Person” section below)
  • Voting by Mail is safe. Many sources, including NPR and the Bipartisan Policy Group, have researched and determined that voting by mail is just as safe as normal, in person voting. 
  • There are 2 OPTIONS on how to return your mail-in ballot:
    • Dropbox Locations: Drop off your ballot at any dropbox location before 8 PM Nov. 3rd
    • Vote Center: Drop off your ballot at any Vote Center before 8 PM Nov. 3rd
  • Before you return your mail-in ballot, make sure to:
    • Place your voted ballot card(s) inside the Official Return Envelope
    • Securely seal the Official Return Envelope
    • Sign and date the back of the Official Return Envelope
      • What if you forgot to sign the envelope on your ballot? You have up to eight days after election day to return an “unsigned ballot statement,” which you must sign.
