Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk (RR/CC) Dean Logan reported that In-Person Early Voting hours at the RR/CC Headquarters in Norwalk have been extended the following two weekends leading up to the June 8, 2010 Statewide Direct Primary Election.
We are committed to providing options to LA County voters to give them every opportunity possible to cast a ballot. The option to vote on the weekend is a service much appreciated by many, whose hectic schedules do not provide that opportunity on Election Day, said Logan.
To vote early, voters can visit the 3rd floor of the RR/CC Headquarters located at 12400 Imperial Hwy., Norwalk, CA, through June 7. In-person Early Voting will be available Monday thru Friday during regular office hours from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and the weekends of May 29-30 and June 5-6 from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
Logan also reported that on April 9, the RR/CC began processing Vote by Mail ballot requests from voters wishing to cast a ballot by mail for the June 8 Election. To date, over 752,000 voters have been issued Vote by Mail ballots, and nearly 95,000 have returned their voted ballot by mail or in-person to the RR/CC, stated Logan.
Voters who requested a Vote by Mail ballot can check the status of their request using the RR/CC’s online look-up. Visit www.lavote.net and click on the Vote by Mail button in the Quick Links box located on the main page. Voters may also call the RR/CC at (562) 466-1323.
In order to be counted, ballots cast by mail must be returned with sufficient time for mail delivery to the RR/CC by 8:00 p.m. on June 8, 2010 (postmarked ballots will not be counted). Vote by Mail ballots may also be returned in person to the RR/CC Headquarters, or delivered to any polling place in Los Angeles County before the polls close at 8 p.m. on Election Day. A voter may authorize a designated family member to return the voted ballot to a polling place or to the RR/CC in accordance with the procedures outlined on the Vote by Mail ballot return envelope.
