Here are some in-person voting tips from the L.A. County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk’s Office:

  • Voters must wear face coverings and practice social distancing.
  • Speed up your check-in time by scanning your quick check-in code, allowing a poll worker to check you in quickly. The code is also on your sample ballot — you can bring that with you.
  • Watch this video to learn how to use the ballot-marking devices introduced this year.

At the registrar’s office in Norwalk, people lined up early to cast their ballots on Saturday. Some who had planned to drop off their mail ballots decided to go in line and just vote in person instead.

“I hear stories about elections being lost or won by two or three votes. Someone [who] didn’t vote could sway the election,” one told KTLA.

Another voter said, “It’s very important to me, and I know that it’s important to everybody else. That’s why I’m here.”
