New Voting Procedures and Recommendations for March Elections

Please consider voting for your PV Democrats fellow members:

  • Connie Sullivan and Ray Waters are running for the LA County Central Committee.  Both are long-time members and activists.  If you are using a voting machine, be sure to scroll down to see all the candidates.
  • Andrew DeBlock is running for Torrance City Council District 6.  Many of you know Andrew from working on re-election campaigns for  Assemblyman Al Muratsuchi.  You can only vote for Andrew if you live in his district.
  • Linda Sun is a long time local activist running for LA County Superior Court Judge office 42.  Linda is the endorsed candidate by the LA County Democratic Party.
  • And, of course, Assemblyman Al Muratsuchi is a PV resident and running for re-election.

How to cast a ballot

For increased voter security and efficiency and to allow as many voters as possible to vote, California has changed some of our voting procedures.  Registered voters in L.A. County now have 11 consecutive days to vote in-person at ANY Vote Center in the County.  For the March 3 Presidential Primary Election Vote Center voting begins February 22 and will be available through 8 PM on Election Day.  Voters are not required to bring anything with them, but as before, bringing your Sample Ballot with your choices already marked, will speed up the voting process.  The actual voting machines are new and have touch screen functions, but voting on these will result in a paper ballot allowing you to double-check your choices prior to submitting your ballot.

Here is a link to the Vote Centers in LA County (drill down to find your preferred location): (please note, there are some centers open for the full 11-days and more that open up for the last 4-days, so be sure to check!).  There are many 4-day centers open starting Feb 29 th , but the only center in PV open for the full 11 days is located at Rolling Hills City Hall, 2 Portuguese Bend Rd, Rolling Hills CA 90274.  Hours: February 22 – March 2: 8AM – 5PM, March 3: 7AM – 8PM.

For those who typically vote by mail, your mail-in ballot should look the same as it did in the last election, when the new ballot format for mail-in ballots was rolled out.

Not yet registered to vote?  In California, the deadline to register to vote for is 15 days prior to the election, so February 18th is the last day to register for our March 3rd Primary.

If you are unsure of your voter registration status, or would like to change it, you can check it or change it here:

If you have registered to vote but are not registered as a Democrat, here’s how you can still vote in the Democratic Presidential Primary:*
