With Tuesday quickly approaching, we have to ask – are your prepared for the Primary Election? Polling Places can be different from what you might consider to be your “regular” polling place. And ballots vary depending upon where you live in the neighborhood.
You can find both your polling place and your sample ballot at the LA County Registrar’s Polling Place and Sample Ballot Lookup.
All voters can now vote in the Statewide Direct Primary Election, regardless of party preference. (The Top Two Candidates Open Primary)
- The Primary is a nonpartisan election. This means the candidate is not nominated by the party. If the candidate has a preferred political party, the party name appears on the ballot for information only.
- All the candidates appear on one ballot. Any voter can vote for the candidate of their choice.
- The two candidates with the most votes will move on to the General Election in November.
