LOS ANGELES COUNTY, CA – If you’ve been waiting for Nov. 8 to have your say in this year’s historical election, it’s finally time to get out and vote. But… wait, where do I go to vote in Los Angeles County?
Do you know your where your polling station is and measures on your ballot? Either way, we advise you to take a brief look at this link from the County of Los Angeles prior to your trip to the poll station: www.goo.gl/4ADk7T
If you’re going to cast a ballot in person, it’s important you show up at the correct polling location. These locations have already been determined by the county’s registrar of voters. (If you’re simply dropping off an absentee ballot, that’s a different story. Read on.)
If you have no idea where you’re supposed to go, don’t worry — there are several ways to look up polling locations, including calling, texting and online lookup tools.
We’ve embedded one great tool below, supplied by the Voting Information Project, that will help you find exactly where you are supposed to head if you would like to cast your ballot in Tuesday’s presidential election.
Or, you can simply look up your polling place via your mobile phone. Text “VOTE” or “VOTO” to GoVote (468-683) to find your polling place.
Finally, we’ve included contact information below for the Los Angeles County registrar of voters if you would like to call to confirm your location or use its own online lookup tool.
Remember, polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 8 p.m. in California. According to the Secretary of State, ballots being personally delivered must be handed in by the close of polls on Nov. 8, 2016. Mailed ballots must be postmarked on or before Nov. 8 and received by your county elections office by Nov. 11.
Busy at work all day? It’s the law that an employer grant you time off to head to the polls if you don’t have enough time during non-working hours.
To drop off a vote-by-mail ballot in person, you can bring it to:
- The county’s registrar of voters office
- Any polling location across the county on Election Day, during election hours
- A designated vote-by-mail drop-off site. Full list can be found here.
If you’ve already mailed in your ballot, you can check the status here.
Though no one can be certain who will claim victory in these races, one thing is for sure: It’s important to exercise your constitutional right to vote! (Just don’t post a “selfie” with your marked ballot, California)
