What It’s Like To Vote On LA County’s New ‘Ballot-Marking Devices’
This election, L.A. County is using new voting machines. They’re called “ballot-marking devices.” Each of the new voter booths features an iPad-esque touchscreen interface and a printer.
The booths are the linchpin of L.A. County’s new voting system: even though I voted this week in Boyle Heights, the screen still showed me all the races from my home precinct across town.
How does the system work? What’s it like to vote in L.A. in 2020? I took my recording gear as I cast my ballot and filed this story to help you know what to expect when you, too, cast a ballot in the March 3 primary.
And watch this space for a video about L.A. County’s new voting experience coming soon.
