Tips for Voting In-Person
The following are tips for in-person voting at vote centers in Long Beach:

• Make sure to wear a face covering. If you do not have a face covering, one will be provided at the vote center.
• Remember to follow physical distance protocols while at vote centers. Keep a six-foot distance between yourself and others.
• Follow voting center protocols. Do not wear any clothing, buttons, hats, or carry a sign with a candidate’s name or logo within 100 feet of a vote center.
• Do not broadcast information about candidates or measures within 100 feet of a vote center.
• Save time by bringing your sample ballot booklet or using the Interactive Sample Ballot.
• For issues including electioneering and voter intimidation, please immediately notify a vote center worker.
• Allow as much time as possible to travel to vote centers, keeping possible traffic in mind.
• Practice patience with others and with staff through the entire vote center process.
• The health and safety of the community continues to be of top priority. All participating vote centers in the city will follow State and County public health and safety guidelines.

Vote by Mail
All registered voters have been mailed and should have received a vote-by-mail ballot. Completed ballots can be returned by mail and must be postmarked on or before Nov. 3 (no postage required) or submitted in-person at any polling place. If you failed to receive your vote-by-mail ballot or have lost or destroyed your original ballot, contact the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk to request a replacement ballot. The last day to request a mail-in ballot is Tuesday, Oct. 27.

Additionally, people may return their mail-in ballots at one of 18 vote-by-mail drop box locations throughout Long Beach, 24 hours a day, during the voting period. The City reminds voters to return ballots only at official drop boxes, and not in book returns at local libraries or unofficial ballot drop boxes. View a list of official drop box locations in Long Beach. Vote-by-mail drop box locations will close at 8 p.m. on Election Day. Ballots placed in drop boxes are collected daily, and voters may track their ballots at california.ballottrax.net/voter/.
