Voting Begins This Weekend for the March 3 Presidential Primary Election
On Saturday, February 22, 2020, the Los Angeles Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk will open all 11-day vote centers throughout LA County. The list of vote centers can be found online or in the Vote Center Locations pamphlet that all voters received in the mail. The 4-day vote centers will open on February 29, 2020.
All vote centers will be open from 8 am to 5 pm through March 2, 2020. On Election Day, March 3, 2020, all vote centers will be open from 7 am to 8 pm. The new voting model gives voters the flexibility to cast their votes over two full weekends.
Voters who receive a Vote By Mail ballot can choose to vote in-person at any vote center.
Voters who prefer to cast their ballot by mail have until February 25, 2020, to request a Vote by Mail ballot from Los Angeles County. Requests for a one-time Vote by Mail ballot can be made via an online or paper application.
Vote By Mail ballots can be dropped in a mailbox (no postage necessary), at a drop-off location, or vote center. Voters who Vote By Mail must secure the ballot inside the envelope and sign the back of the envelope. All Vote By Mail ballots must be postmarked by March 3, 2020.
Voters who are registered No Party Preference (NPP) can request a crossover ballot for American Independent, Democratic, or Libertarian parties. All other parties require voters to re-register to vote to participate in the Presidential Primary Election.
