THE Los Angeles County deadline to register to vote in the June primary election is approaching on Monday, May 23.

Los Angeles City Clerk Holly L. Wolcott is reminding residents to register to vote in the June 7, 2022 Primary Nominating Election.

To be eligible to vote, a person must be a citizen of the United States, at least 18 years old by Election Day, and not in prison for a felony. Registered voters who have moved or changed their names since the last election, or would like to change their political party affiliation must also re-register to vote.

Eligible residents can register to vote and check registration status online at registertovote.ca.gov and voterstatus.sos.ca.gov.

Voters can vote in-person or drop-off their voted ballot at any Vote Center in L.A. County. In-person voting will be available beginning Saturday, May 28, 2022. To find a Vote Center, visit https://locator.lavote.gov/

Conditional voter registration

Eligible Los Angeles County residents who miss the registration deadline can still vote at any Vote Center in L.A. County. Under California Election Law, Conditional Voter Registration (CVR) allows a prospective voter to register and cast a ballot.

Vote-by-mail

All voters in California, registered by the May 23, 2022 deadline, will automatically be sent a Vote-By-Mail Ballot. This allows all voters the chance to vote safely at home without needing to be in a public space.

There are three ways voters may return their Vote-By-Mail Ballot:

  • Mail their ballot by Election Day, June 7, 2022 (if postmarked by Election Day and received within seven days, it will be accepted).
  • Use an Official Vote-By-Mail Drop Box location. Find locations at https://locator.lavote.gov/locations/vbm.
  • Drop off their ballot at any Vote Center in Los Angeles County.

The City’s Primary Nominating Election will be held June 7, 2022, and the General Municipal Election will be held November 8, 2022. While the City conducted the candidate filing portion of the elections, the County of Los Angeles Registrar Recorder (County) will administer the elections, for more information please call (800) 815-2666 or visit: https://lavote.gov/.
