All voters in Los Angeles County have the option to vote by mail. A Vote by Mail (VBM) Ballot is mailed to voters, who can mail back the ballot or to drop off the ballot at a polling place on Election Day. Please note VBM ballots postmarked by Election Day will be counted if received within three days by the Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk (California Senate Bill 29).
