There are just 75 days until the 2020 Election!
Now's the time to ask yourself: Am I eligible to vote? Am I registered at my current address? Do I want a mail-in ballot, and if so, have I signed up for one?
In anticipation of the 2020 election, we want to make sure that every Angeleno is prepared. Figuring out voting deadlines and eligibility can be confusing, so we've compiled a guide with the tools you'll need to be empowered and civically engaged. Below are some resources that we hope will help:
Important dates and deadlines:
October 6: Voting by mail begins
October 19: Last day to register to vote via by mail or online*
October 24: LA County Vote Centers open for early voting
November 3: 2020 Election Day!
*Provisional registration is available through Election Day
Voter registration resources:
- Is your voter registration active? Make sure to check your status with the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder so you aren't caught off guard! (For example, if you've moved within the state of California since you last registered, you must re-register at your current address.)
- Military or overseas voters can follow the California Secretary of State's instruction to receive their mail-in ballot abroad.
- Did you know? 16- and 17-year-olds can pre-register to vote and automatically be registered on your 18th birthday.
- Due to the circumstances of COVID-19, every California voter is eligible to receive a mail-in ballot.
- FYI: Mail-in ballots must be postmarked by Election Day and received within 17 days by the LA County Registrar-Recorder to be counted.
- Once you've mailed your ballot, you can check on its status with the LA County Registrar-Recorder to make sure it was received.
- If you need assistance voting in another language, you can check out LA County's Multi-Lingual Services Program.
