Request for Proposals

In 2020, the Los Angeles County modernized the voting experience with the new Voting Solutions for All People(VSAP) voting system –which introduced new applications and technologies.

LA County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk is now seeking to modernize its Election Management System (EMS) — the key to managing the voter registration and election processes after the successful rollout of its voting system (VSAP). LA County is the largest and most complex election jurisdiction in the country. The system, which is key to managing the voter registration and election processes is expected to be in place after the appropriate vendors get selected through the selection process. RRCC will be seeking bids from the primary vendors later this year for this solicitation for an EMS that is modern, scalable, secure, and meets the County’s current and future needs.

Though some details still must win final approval before being made public, the needs of a new system will likely include:

  • Support for core voter records, elections, petitions, vote by mail, election results, content management and administrative functionality at the scale of Los Angeles County.
  • Provide modern tools that can accommodate self-service reporting and data analytics capabilities.
  • Integrate with the broader ecosystem through a modern API gateway/integration capability that prevents proliferation of point-to-point connections.
  • Support a long-term software life cycle and a path for continuous modernization.

The county is aiming to have a new EMS system in place before the November 2024 general election.
