People may vote in any of the nine centers for a period of 11 days.

Mobile voting centers will be available starting today February 22

People will have 11 days to vote for the first time in history.


Less than two weeks after the long-awaited primary elections on March 3, many people are still unaware of the new electronic method that will be used for the first time in Los Angeles County.

For this reason, the Los Angeles County Development Authority (LACDA) will have voting centers in nine of its public and affordable housing communities, as well as in the South Whittier Community Resource Center for people to familiarize themselves with the voting method

LACDA is an industry leading agency in its three main service areas: housing, community and economic development.

Elisa Vázquez, a spokesman for LACDA, said the process is being carried out in partnership with Los Angeles County to provide more access to voters.

This is the first election in which Los Angeles County makes the transition from places to vote to the Voting Centers, in accordance with the California Voter Election Act (VCA).

Temporary mailboxes so that the Angels have more options to cast their vote.

This new law, VCA, was passed to modernize the elections under a new model that provides greater flexibility and convenience for the electorate. It allows people to cast their vote in any center of the county for an extended period of 11 days, instead of voting only on election day in one place.

"The mobile centers will be open to any voter in the county," Vázquez said.

Help for the homeless

Dean C. Logan, representative of the Los Angeles County Civil Registry, said that all people who are eligible to vote must do so, regardless of whether they are homeless or not.

"We want to make sure that every eligible resident has the opportunity not only to register to vote, but also to cast their vote," Logan said in a statement. "That is why, for the next presidential primary elections, we will take the vote to some of our most vulnerable residents."

Flex Voting Centers have also partnered with other grassroots programs so that the homeless can participate in the elections. These centers have the same equipment and services that are in a traditional polling place, including the same day registration.

"With the new voting experience that comes to Los Angeles County, my team has expanded into our more than 950 centers and will establish Flex Voting Centers," Logan said.

It is estimated that in Los Angeles County there are 1,240 registered homeless voters but they will have the opportunity to vote at the Flex Voting Centers.

If you are not registered you can also vote

The civil registry office reported that if a voter could not register before the deadline, which was February 18, they can still go to any polling place in Los Angeles County and cast a vote through the Conditional Registration of Voter (same day registration).

People who conditionally register to vote at the center will have the same experience marking their ballot, except that they must return it to the electoral worker with their Conditional Voter Registration, so that eligibility can be verified.

Once verified, the registry office will process and count the ballot.

Los Angeles residents can verify their online registration status, in addition to making sure their information is correct. For more information you can visit
