You might have heard the way we vote is changing -- the March 2020 primary will be the first election in Los Angeles County and Orange County to make use of regional voting centers instead of your usual neighborhood polling place.
The centers in operation for 11 days (February 22 to March 3) open their doors today. Others open in a week and will operate for four days (February 29 - March 3).
That means you no longer have an assigned place to vote. You can go to any voting center in the county and cast your ballot.
If you're interested in how L.A. County decided on these particular voting locations, they broke down the process on their website.
Some vote centers start to pop up on Feb. 22nd for an 11-day voting period. Majority are open for four days -- starting Feb. 29.— Libby Denkmann (@libdenk) January 25, 2020
I'd love to hear if your old spot made the list!
And here's a friendly reminder for those who don't want to vote in person: you have until February 25 to request your vote-by-mail ballot. Here's where you can do that for L.A. County.
If you're registered in Orange County, you'll automatically receive a vote-by-mail ballot -- convenient, eh?
