LA County seeks community input on location of Santa Clarita voting centersBrianna Bricker January 4, 2019 0 COMMENTS
The Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder and County Clerk’s office is hosting a discussion about its new Vote Centers at the Newhall Community Center on Jan. 6.
The meeting, which starts at noon, is one of 33 meetings taking place across the county to give residents the opportunity to discuss potential Vote Center locations to be placed within their neighborhoods in 2020. In addition to receiving information about the new voting model, residents will be invited to ask questions and provide input about Vote Centers locations.
The new voting locations are part of a project called Voting Solutions for All People, which aims to improve voting accessibility in Los Angeles County by implementing a new voting model in compliance with the California Voter’s Choice Act, which was passed by the California State Legislature in 2016.
Vote Centers will offer an 11-day voting period in accessible locations within the county and allow all voters to visit any site in the county to vote regardless of their residential address, according to the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder and County Clerk’s office. In addition, Vote Centers will also serve as vote-by-mail drop-off locations.
