Early voting for the 2020 California primary began Saturday at hundreds of voting centers throughout Los Angeles County. Voters in LA County now have 11 days to cast their votes before the Super Tuesday primary.
This is the first election that LA County transitioned from polling places to vote centers, allowing voters to cast their ballot at any voting center in the county over an extended period of time. This is opposed to voting on election day at one specific polling place.
The new change is about convenience for voters as they are now in control of when and where they vote.
