Voting centers throughout Los Angeles County will remain open for voters who arrive before the official closing time of 8 p.m. Tuesday, officials said.
Voters in a county with more than a quarter of the state’s 20 million registered voters, were met with long lines at vote centers on Super Tuesday. Voters were encouraged to stay in line or find another center nearby before 8 p.m., according to the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk.
The agency said its priority is to “to ensure every voter who turned out on or before the closing of the Vote Centers get the opportunity to make their voice heard.”
The county has a new $300 million voting system with electronic pollbooks, which were operating slowly Tuesday due to of an influx of users, according to the county registrar-recorder’s office.
