For first-time voters and those who may have fallen by the electoral wayside, the county Registrar has produced a how-to video (embedded below) of the process.
An “I Voted” sticker will likely follow.
Voting by Mail
If you’re mailing in your vote, it must be received by the time polls close at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, regardless of the postmark. That means a stamp of June 5 won’t be enough for your vote to count.
Officials advise casting your mail-in votes with sufficient time for carriers to hand it over to the Registrar-Recorder/County clerk.
Too late for the mail carrier to do your bidding?
Vote by Mail ballots can be cast in person to the RR/CC Headquarters in Norwalk (map below), or to any polling place in LA County before the polls close.
