This primary election is the first time Pasadena residents will cast ballots under a brand-new model, one that includes state-of-the art equipment, an updated design for mail-in ballots and new locations for in-person voting.
The biggest change for in-person voters is that the familiar election Tuesday trip to a neighborhood polling place is going away.
Instead, voters will be able to stop by any regional vote center in the county for up to 10 days before the election. That means the first L.A. County vote centers will open Feb. 22.
The vote centers will also be a place to drop off your mail-in ballot, register to vote (even on the day of the election), get help voting in multiple languages and get a replacement vote-by-mail ballot if yours is lost or destroyed.
