In Brief

Voting Changes in 2020

Los Angeles County has transitioned from polling places to Vote Centers, which allow voters 11 days to cast a ballot in person during the upcoming election. Ballots can be cast from any Vote Center location countywide. New fully accessible ballot marking devices will be provided and ballots will be translated into 12 languages.

To learn about these changes, Voting Solutions for All People (VSAP) will be demonstrated at various Los Angeles County centers. Anyone may visit a demo center to try the new fully accessible ballot marking device and preview the electronic pollbook. The County is hosting 10 demo centers throughout LA County in January on a rotational basis.

In Glendale, a demo will be offered at the Glendale Police community room, 131 N. Isabel St. in Glendale through Saturday, Jan. 25. Demos are Tuesdays – Fridays from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

(Not open Sundays and Mondays.)
