Vote In Person

Vote Center Information

Voters in Los Angeles County have the option to cast their ballot in-person at a participating Vote Center in an upcoming election.

Vote Centers provide modern features to make voting safe, easy, and convenient. Vote Centers also serve as a Vote by Mail Ballot Drop Box location – no need to wait, simply drop off your voted ballot at the front.

Safe In-Person Voting

Your health and safety is our priority. Vote Centers will follow public health and safety guidelines related to COVID-19, such as:

  • Voters are strongly encouraged to wear a face mask while in line or voting
  • Wiping and sanitizing all surfaces and Ballot Marking Devices after each voter
  • Social distancing

Safe Election Plan

Speed Up Your Check-in at the Vote Center

Reduce time checking in at the Vote Center by scanning your Quick Check-in Code.

After entering your personal information your unique check-in code (barcode) will appear under your registration information. Show your code to the Election Worker when at the Vote Center to instantly check in.

Your Quick Check-in Code is also printed on your mailed Sample Ballot and Vote Center postcard. You may take either of those hard copies to the Vote Center as well.
