West Hollywood Residents Invited to Help Identify Locations for Voting Centers for 2020

The Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk is hosting a series of “Vote Center Placement Project” community meetings this month to help identify potential voting center locations for the March 2020 presidential primary election and beyond.

In 2020, Los Angeles County will transition from polling places to vote centers. This new model will allow voters to cast a ballot at any vote center location in the county over an 11-day period. The Vote Center Placement Project’s (VCPP) core mission is to identify and place accessible and convenient vote center locations throughout Los Angeles County.

There are two upcoming Vote Center Placement Project meetings in the vicinity of the City of West Hollywood:

— The first meeting will take place on Jan 11 from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. at United Cerebral Palsy of Los Angeles, located at 6110 Washington Blvd. in Culver City.

— The second meeting will take place on Jan. 12 from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. at the Beverly Hills Public Library Auditorium, located at 444 North Rexford Drive in Beverly Hills. The Beverly Hills meeting will include Russian language assistance and translated meeting materials.

The meetings are free and open to the public. For additional information about the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk’s “Vote Center Placement Project,” please visit http://vsap.lavote.net/vote-center-placement-project/

  1. Why are people who CAN NOT speak English voting? Are they legal citizens? I am fed up with wasting my tax dollars on people who move here to take take take. We have a large Russian population who come here and contribute very little in taxes, and their legal status is questionable (visa over stays).

  2. Will they be appropriately staffed? That’s the larger issue. This last election, my poll workers were criminally incompetent. To the point that I will be signing up to volunteer for future elections so it won’t take 10 minutes to find one name.

  3. The move to reduce voting centers, formerly polling places, ought to greatly increase the use of absentee ballots. Not necessarily a bad thing but, ‘going to the polls to vote’ is a more active exercise of the right and duty of registered citizens. I think that we need to vote in our commuinities, hopefully within walking distancce.
