L.A. County has transitioned from typical polling places, which Mt. SAC has historically been, to vote centers in an attempt to increase voter turnout. There are nearly 1,000 total vote centers across the county, with the vast majority of those as 4-day vote centers.

Vote LA graphicA few dozen other select locations across the county offer an 11-day period to vote, which began this week. Find those on the LA County voting site.

 

Ballot marking deviceVoting on campus begins this Saturday, February  29, in Building 6, Room 160 (the back side of the library building, facing Temple Ave.).

With the move away from a single day of voting, the county seeks to accommodate all of its residents, making elections more accessible. The new voting model will move away from pre-printed paper rosters and replace it with real-time access to the full voter database, eliminating the need for provisional ballots.

Only residents registered to vote in LA County may use the voting center. For San Bernardino County residents, visit their elections website. For Orange County residents visit their elections website.
