Voting Safely in Long BeachRelease Date: 2020-11-03
Our elections team, Office of the City Clerk and public safety personnel have extensively prepared for a safe Election Day today. I’ve reviewed our plans and we are working to ensure that everyone can vote safely and that regardless of outcomes, the city stays safe in the days ahead.
Voters in Long Beach have been voting for weeks, which is great. But for everyone who hasn’t voted yet, there’s still time to do so. If you have your completed mail-in ballot ready, be sure to put that into one of our 18 drop-off locations throughout the city, including a drive-through location at the CSULB Carpenter Performing Arts Center for your ease and convenience.
And for residents who want to vote in person, the city has opened some of our most iconic locations for voting, like the Long Beach Convention Center, the Museum of Latin American Art and the LBCC - Pacific Coast Campus. Check out the full list here.
This election is about more than just who will become our next President. Here in Long Beach, we have a local ballot measure and several important local elections including for City Council, LBUSD School Board and City College Trustee. And there are also many statewide propositions for voters to consider. You can learn more about all of these elections, find your local polling place and track your vote-by-mail ballot at LAvote.net.
Thank you and stay safe,
Mayor Robert Garcia
