County sets up midnight voter registration drop-offs

October 18, 2010|By Jason Wells, jason.wells@latimes.com

Residents have until midnight to drop off their voter registration forms at 11 so-called "drive-thru" stations scattered throughout Los Angeles County today.

A drop-off point has been set up by the county registrar-recorder at Glendale City Hall, 613 E. Broadway, and will accept voter registration forms for the upcoming Nov. 2 election until midnight.

Today is the deadline for the forms, which must be postmarked by today for the general statewide election, in which a number of controversial propositions, combined with a heated gubernatorial race, should generate better-than-usual turnout at the polls, political experts say.

Registration forms can be downloaded at www.lavote.net, or be requested over the form at (800) 481-VOTE. The forms are also available for pick-up at libraries, fire stations, post offices and other public service buildings.

Voters who want to verify their registration status, or make sure their current address is updated, may also log on to ww.lavote.net.

Officials will be at the drop-off sites until midnight to assist voters with questions. The county registrar estimates that roughly 1.5 million adults in Los Angeles County are not registered to vote.

Similar drive-thru stations have been set up in Pasadena, West Covina and Pomona. A full list of stations can be found on the registrar’s website.
