February 27, 2020
For those that are not aware, there are changes in this year's voting experience. Los Angeles County has changed the way we will be voting as part of the county's efforts to modernize the voting experience. Polling places have been upgraded to Vote Centers and under the Voter's Choice Act (VCA), voters will have the option to vote over an 11-day period at ANY vote center located throughout Los Angeles County.
Five of the voting centers located in Long Beach have been open since February 22nd
. The remaining 26 voting centers will be open for 4 days, beginning February 29th until March 3rd. Every voting center in Long Beach will be open from 7 am to 8 pm on Election Day, March 3, 2020.

As for those who have received a vote by mail ballot, the Long Beach Office of the City Clerk released the following statement on January 31st, 2020:
"The Voter's Choice Act (VCA) also mandates that shared legislative districts with another VCA County must provide a Vote By Mail ballot to voters. Congressional District 47 spans across Orange and Los Angeles Counties. Because Orange County is a Vote By Mail VCA election, all voters in the Congressional District 47 will receive a Vote By Mail ballot. Congressional District 47 includes Long Beach Council Districts 1 - 7 and 2/3rds of 8. Council District 9 voters are not affected. The only voters from Council District 9 that will receive a Vote By Mail ballot are those who are registered permanent Vote By Mail voters or who requested a Vote By Mail ballot."
Long Beach voters in Congressional District 47 who have received a Vote By Mail ballot can still opt to vote at a vote center by surrendering their Vote By Mail Ballot and using the new Ballot Marking Device.
