Elections and Voter Information
The County has moved from precincts to Vote Centers!
A big change is sweeping Los Angeles County with the upcoming March election! There will no longer be precincts in cities; instead, there will be Vote Centers located throughout the County. The Voting Solutions for All People project, commonly referred to as VSAP, is the County’s initiative to improve and modernize the voting experience. In March 2020, the County will move away from a precinct-based model to the Vote Center model made possible through the California Voter’s Choice Act. This will create an 11-day period of voting and will allow voters to vote at any Vote Center in the County during that period. In addition, the County will move to a new fully accessible Ballot Marking Device, or BMD, which incorporates a modern touchscreen interface, but still retains a paper ballot for security. Click here to watch a demonstration of the new electronic voting equipment!
