HOW TO VOTE

L.A. County is making voting as safe as possible, and modernizing how you cast your ballot! This year, there are more ways to cast your ballot than ever.  
 

VOTE BY MAIL

Don’t wait until Election Day! The safest way to cast your ballot is to Vote by Mail. You rely on the Postal Service to send your tax returns, receive credit cards, and get a driver’s license. Keep your vote secure and Vote by Mail. 

All registered voters in LA County will be mailed a Vote by Mail ballot. All you have to do is fill out your ballot, mail it and make sure it’s postmarked by Election Day. No postage is required!

VOTE BY MAIL BALLOT DROP BOX  
 

The Vote by Mail Ballot Drop Box program started in 2017 as an initiative to provide voters with a secure alternative option for returning their ballot. In the March 2020 Primary Election, the number of boxes throughout the County expanded to 206. These boxes remained secure and accessible throughout the entire voting period. In the 2020 Presidential General Election there will be more than 400 secure Drop Boxes throughout the County, including two in the City of San Fernando, giving voters a safe, accessible and contact free method to return their ballot during the COVID-19 Pandemic.
