Here’s how LA County residents can get more information on how to vote in today’s state recall election
Los Angeles County’s polls open at 7 a.m. today, Sept. 14, and close at 8 p.m. in the statewide gubernatorial recall election.
If you need information about where to vote in person or need to get other last-minute questions answered, log on to the county’s elections site, lavote.net, or call 800-815-2666.
If you vote by mail, your ballot must be postmarked by today. You can also insert your ballot into one of many drop-off boxes around the county.
Those voting in person, meanwhile, can do so cheaply.
Train rides will be free until 11:50 p.m. today. Metro buses are already running fare-free during the coronavirus pandemic. Metro’s Bike Share system will offer free rides for the first 30 minutes, and then $1.75 per half-hour after that.
The Glendora Transportation Division, Los Angeles County Department of Public Works County Shuttles, Montebello Bus Lines and Pasadena Transit will also offer free rides.
