If you're skeptical about the new InkaVote system, or you just really like computers, there's good news. Later this month, LA county will make an early touch screen voting option available to all county residents. Nearby locations include Beverly Hills City Hall, the Braille Institute on Vermont, the Central Library downtown and City Hall in Culver City. Check here for all 17 locations across the county.
The early polls will be open from October 20 through 29. They're open seven days a week (check the site for hours, then just walk in and vote). They're also accessible to the disabled, and voting is available in several languages. So now you have one less excuse not to vote.
No word on whether touch screen voters still get those snazzy "I Voted" stickers.
