The Voting Solutions for All People (VSAP) was developed by the Los Angeles Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk to address an aging voting system and an increasingly large and complex electorate. The new system makes it easy for voters with a full range of types of disabilities and voters with limited English proficiency to cast a ballot. Voters in L.A. County no longer have to vote in-person on a single day. You will have 11 consecutive days to vote in-person at any Vote Center countywide.
The Voting Solutions for All People also has a dedicated website where you can view information on the project’s origins, design concepts, principles, and quarterly reports.
The Ballot Marking Device uses technology to give voters an easy and accessible voting experience. You will make your selections electronically, with more than 30 languages to choose from. Accessibility is further enhanced with audio ballot reading, advanced screen settings, and more. You will have multiple chances to correct errors or make changes to your selections. Once you’ve made your final selections, the Ballot Marking Device will then print out a paper ballot as your official submission, to ensure the security and integrity of the election.
The Interactive Sample Ballot will save you time at the polls. You can start creating your Sample Ballot online today. It is a digital sample ballot that you mark electronically on a smartphone, tablet or computer, prior to casting your ballot in-person. Your device will then generate a unique QR code called the Poll Pass. You can bring your electronic Poll Pass to any vote center within the County and scan it right at the Ballot Marking Device. The Device will then generate all of your selections from the Interactive Sample Ballot and load them into the official ballot. You can then decide to make changes to your ballot, or submit as-is.
All Los Angeles County voters will be able to start voting in-person 10 days prior to Election Day. You will no longer be restricted to vote in-person on a single Tuesday.
You will be able to cast your ballot at any of the 1,000 vote centers located throughout the County within the 11-day voting period. Electronic Pollbooks available at each location will verify the registration eligibility of any County voter. Additionally, you will be able to register to vote and update your voter registration in-person at any vote center.
