The Palos Verdes Democrats was founded in 1952.
Since then, we have remained an active participant in both local
and national politics.
Our monthly meetings often feature guest speakers who address
current political or social issues. Special events include
opportunities to meet our elected local, state, or national
representatives, as well as events where candidates for office can
be seen and heard.
A Permanent Absentee Voter is someone who signs up
once to receive all ballots by mail (until the voter changes his
or her address). The State of California sends PAVs a ballot for
each election. They arrive approximately a month in advance of
local or national elections. Completed ballots can either be
mailed back in time to be received by election day, or brought
directly to your polling center.
Having Permanent Vote By Mail status does not mean you must vote
by mail. But it does give you a valuable option and insures that
your vote will be counted if for any reason you can't make it to
If you prefer casting your ballot at your polling location you can
exchange your absentee ballot at the polls and vote on site just
as you have in the past. You also can complete the absentee ballot
at home and submit that to the polls on election day, or you can
even sign the completed ballot off to someone you trust to turn it
in. The choice is yours.
As you can see, the benefits are clear. As a PAV you'll always
have the ability to submit your vote even if unexpected
circumstances arise. It's truly a win-win and the only way to
insure that your vote will be counted in every election.
