2020 LA COUNTY ELECTIONS
USING BAY LAUREL AS A POLLING PLACE - INPUT NEEDED NOW!
We apologize if anyone tried to submit comments based on last Sunday's blast link. It was not working. Please use the updated link below (to email address   vsap@rrcc.lacounty.gov) and send/resend your comments.
**************************************************
As Los Angeles County prepares for the 2020 Presidential Election, exploration of polling sites and newly proposed hours are up for discussion. *THIS INCLUDES BAY LAUREL!*

One of the major proposed changes includes having voting sites, like Bay Laurel, be open for voting for four or even eleven days! For a summary of LVUSD's position, click here . Our district staff has suggested a number of alternative site s, instead of using our schools as polling sites.

If you are opposed to our campus being used as an official polling place (thus letting countless unscreened adults on campus, for potentially more than one day), please let the LA County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk know your position on the use of Bay Laurel for voting!
