Vote 2020: What You Need to Know About the Fall Elections
November 3 is Election Day! Voting is a foundational aspect of the democratic process, and making informed decisions on voting is an important part of being a good citizen. Here are some things you need to know about the upcoming elections in L.A. County and beyond:
- Register and know where and how you will vote. If you have not already registered to vote, do so as soon as possible. If you are not sure about how to vote by mail or where to go to vote in person, the L.A. County Registrar offers a one-stop source of information on everything you need to know at https://lavote.net/home/voting-elections/current-elections/find-my-election-information.
- Know your elections. Nearly all of us are aware that 2020 is a Presidential election year, but do you know who else you will be choosing this year when you vote? State and local races are important too. To make informed decisions, learn more by visiting https://lavote.net/home/voting-elections/current-elections/find-my-election-information.
- Know your ballot initiatives. Ballot initiatives give voters the opportunity to make decisions on changes to laws or government funding. To understand more about the ballot initiatives you will be deciding on this fall, visit https://ballotpedia.org/November_3,_2020_ballot_measures_in_California.
- Consider volunteering at the polls in November. To ensure that elections run smoothly and that all voices are heard in the elections, Los Angeles County is seeking volunteers to work at the polls.
