Vote Center Days and Hours in Los Angeles County & at LACCD

Voters can vote in-person at ANY Vote Center in the County—there will be more than 700 Vote Centers throughout Los Angeles County, including those at the LACCD colleges.  While in line at a Vote Center, please direct questions or requests to the County officials staffing the centers.

County Vote Centers at the nine LACCD colleges will be operational starting Saturday, October 24 through Monday, November 2 for early voting, and then on Election Day, Tuesday, November 3.  Hours are 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Oct. 24 – Nov. 2 and, on Election Day, 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Check with the County at https://locator.lavote.net/locations/vc?id=4193&culture=en to find a Vote Center near you if the LACCD locations are not convenient.  Remember, you vote in your county of residence where you live, even if you commute into Los Angeles County for work.  Please refer to the election info for your county of residence as procedures can vary from county to county.

Guidelines for voting in person in Los Angeles County—including the required facial coverings and other social distancing—are online at https://www.lavote.net/home/voting-elections/voting-options/voting-in-person.  All persons wishing to vote in person, including at the LACCD locations, will be required to follow the County’s health and safety requirements.

Free, temporary parking for voters and on-campus directional signage to the Voting Centers will be provided at each college.  The County’s Vote Centers are separate operations from other activities at the colleges.  It is important for voters to use the correct entrances and to follow the correct wayfinding signs to the Vote Centers at the LACCD colleges.  No Vote Center access will be granted to anyone who attempts to use the college’s own COVID-19 screening checkpoints at each college for other on-campus operations.

Vote by Mail Drop Boxes

Each LACCD college also is an official location for the County’s Vote By Mail Drop Boxes that are accessible 24/7.  Go to https://locator.lavote.net/locations/vbm/?id=4193&culture=en to find one near you.  Please follow the wayfinding signs for the drop boxes.

Don’t be fooled!  Make sure you use an official drop box that is clearly labeled and marked as one from the County Registrar of Voters.  Go to https://www.lavote.net/home/voting-elections/voting-options/vote-by-mail/vbm-ballot-drop-off for an image of the drop box.

Employees scheduled to be at work during Election Day and who believe they do not have sufficient time outside of regularly scheduled work hours to vote at a statewide election, can take up to two hours off work to vote without losing pay, according to California election law.  Employees, however, must notify their employer at least two working days prior to the election if they need to take time off to vote. (California Elections Code section 14001)
