The City urges all West Hollywood residents who have not yet done so to vote in the 2020 Election.

Vote Centers in the City of West Hollywood
Are Open Through November 3, 2020

As part of the City of West Hollywood’s continuous efforts to increase voter participation, the City reminds community members that each vote counts and your voice matters in the upcoming General Municipal Election.

Millions of voters across the country have already cast ballots in early voting states. Election Day is Tuesday, November 3, 2020, but there are many ways to vote early. Online voter registration in California is now closed, but the State of California allows for conditional day-of registration and allows that voter to cast a provisional ballot. Postal mail-in and ballot-drop-off voting for registered voters began on Monday, October 5, 2020. Many LA County Vote Centers began operating on Saturday, October 24, 2020; three City of West Hollywood Vote Centers open today, Friday, October 30, 2020. Due to recent Supreme Court decisions regarding the counting of mailed ballots that arrive after election day in other states, the City is strongly recommending that residents consider convenient options to return ballots directly to a Vote Center or by depositing ballots in an official Ballot Drop Box, or alternatively, by voting in person at any Vote Center in Los Angeles County. Still, the Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk has pledged that it will count all mailed ballots postmarked by November 3, if received within 17 days of Election Day.

Traditional neighborhood “polling places” have been replaced in Los Angeles County by Vote Centers, which allow LA County residents (this includes West Hollywood residents) to vote in person at any Vote Center location in LA County through Election Day, Tuesday, November 3, 2020.

There are three Vote Centers in the City of West Hollywood:
  • Plummer Park’s Fiesta Hall, located at 7377 Santa Monica Boulevard;
  • Kimpton La Peer Hotel’s Lobby Rooftop, located at 627 N. La Peer Drive; and
  • Iranian American Jewish Federation’s Sapper Hall, 1317 N Crescent Heights Boulevard
Vote Centers will be open from Saturday, October 30, 2020 to Tuesday, November 3, 2020. Vote Centers are open every day from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. during the pre-Election Day voting period. On Election Day, Tuesday, November 3, 2020, Vote Centers will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. For all LA County Vote Center locations and estimated wait times, visit

The City of West Hollywood provides two free options for residents who need transportation assistance to vote in person at a Vote Center. Cityline makes regular stops at or within a few blocks of all three locations. For a route and schedule, visit Dial-a-Ride is available between 7:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday by reservation. Reservations must be made 24 hours before the date/time a ride is needed. For advance reservations, call toll-free (800) 447-2189.

All Vote Centers have made health and safety a priority and will follow state and county public health and safety guidelines, such as:
  • Voters must use facial coverings and gloves (coverings and gloves will be made available if needed);
  • Wiping and sanitizing all surfaces and Ballot Marking Devices after each voter;
  • Enforcement of social distancing of six feet or more; and
  • Election workers will wear protective gloves and masks.
In addition to in-person voting at Vote Centers for the November 3, 2020 General Municipal Election, the City of West Hollywood has worked with LA County to establish three Ballot Drop Box locations in West Hollywood. These Ballot Drop Boxes are bright yellow and clearly marked. They feature safety and security features, such as 24-hour electronic monitoring. Locations are as follows:
  • West Hollywood City Hall, located at 8300 Santa Monica Boulevard
    (Ballot Drop Box located behind City Hall, off of N. Sweetzer Avenue)
  • West Hollywood Library, located at 625 N. San Vicente Boulevard
    (Ballot Drop Box located on the west side of the street, in front of the library)
  • Plummer Park, located at 7377 Santa Monica Boulevard
