If you are in line before 8 pm on the day of the election, you are still allowed to vote. To check for Vote Centers near you, click Where’s my Vote Center?
Los Angeles County has provided public health and safety guidelines, such as:
- Social distancing of 6 feet
- Election Workers wearing protective gloves and masks
- Wiping down surfaces and Ballot Marking Devices after every voter
- Limiting the number of voters in the voting area at one time
