Voting by Mail in Los Angeles County

Vote by Mail Notices

Check Your Mailbox

All registered voters have been mailed a Vote by Mail Address Confirmation Notice with information on how to safely vote in the November 3, 2020 General Election.

If you have recently moved, we need to know. You can easily update your address by filling out the Vote by Mail Address Confirmation Notice and dropping it in the mail!

If your address hasn't changed then no action is needed. Although, we always encourage voters to check their registration information on our Registration Status Tool.
