LAN­CASTER — An­te­lope Val­ley vot­ers can learn at a Jan. 15 meet­ing about changes in the way elec­tions will be con­ducted in Los An­ge­les County start­ing with the March 3 pres­i­den­tial pri­mary elec­tion.

A com­mu­nity meet­ing, put on by the Los An­ge­les County Reg­is­trar-Recorder/County Clerk’s Of­fice, will take place from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Jan. 15 at the Lan­caster Li­brary, 601 West Lan­caster Blvd.

Rather than cit­i­zens vot­ing on Elec­tion Day at the polling place to which their neigh­bor­hood is as­signed, cit­i­zens will be able to vote at any one of 1,000 Los An­ge­les County “vote cen­ters,” which will be open up to 10 days be­fore Elec­tion Day.

Cit­i­zens will still be able to vote by mail as well.

At the vote cen­ters, there will be new elec­tronic bal­lot mark­ing de­vices to re­place the “inka-vote” mark­ing pens. An elec­tronic bal­lot mark­ing de­vice will be avail­able at the Jan. 15 meet­ing for at­ten­dees to try.
