As a result of SB 415, cities in Los Angeles County with less than 25% voter turnout were mandated to consolidate with Los Angeles County Registrar Recorder (County) to run the City's general municipal elections. The County will be modernizing the voting experience. Voters will be able to vote when, where and how they want throughout Los Angeles County. While the new voting system is electronic, the ballots will continue being cast on paper. To learn more about the modernized voting experience, click this link.
