All nine colleges of the Los Angeles Community College District (LACCD) will host new, multi-day Voting Centers in collaboration with the Los Angeles County Registrar of Voters for the March 3 Primary Elections.

All LACCD students, faculty, staff and public are reminded that the deadline to register to vote for the March 3 Primary is no later than Tuesday, February 18, 2020. To determine your status as a registered voter, or to register/re-register, go to either of these sites:

“We want to make voting as easy and convenient as possible for students and all members of the LACCD community. With so many critical issues on the March ballot, I hope that everyone will participate in this election. Our democracy depends on it,” LACCD Board President Andra Hoffman said.

So, remember these important dates, Hoffman said, and use the online links provided here to register to vote and ensure your voice and your vote counts!

  • Deadline to register (re-register or change your address) to vote in California’s March primary is Tuesday, February 18. www.lavote.net 
  • Deadline to apply for a vote-by-mail (mail-in) ballot is February 25, 2020, but you first must already be registered to vote by the deadline above.

“The District is working directly with Los Angeles County to make sure each college has a voting center that our students and the public can access. Every election has issues that are of great concern for students and public education. We cannot stress enough the importance for everybody to cast their ballots. Not only is voting our right and duty, but we must seek to enable easy access to the ballot for all voters whenever possible,” LACCD Board Vice President Steven Veres said.

Each LACCD college will host a Voting Center that provides students and the public the opportunity to vote early prior to March 3. Free, temporary parking for voters and on-campus directional signage to the Voting Centers will be provided at each college.

Two LACCD colleges, Los Angeles City College and Los Angeles Mission College, will host 11-day Voting Centers that will operate from Saturday, February 22 through March 3, 2020, including on Sundays. LACCD’s other seven colleges, including Los Angeles Harbor, Los Angeles Pierce, Los Angeles Southwest, Los Angeles Trade-Technical, Los Angeles Valley, East Los Angeles and West Los Angeles, will host four-day Voting Centers beginning Saturday, February 29 through March 3, 2020, Sunday included.
