Remember To Vote On Tuesday, March 8

Pasadena, CA ­ Election day is Tuesday, March 8 and several Los Angeles County cities will have local elections. Polls will be open from 7AM until 8PM. Any absentee (vote-by-mail) ballots must be received by the city clerk's offices on March 8 by 8 p.m. In order to ensure that absentee ballots are received, it is recommended that voters mail ballots by Friday, March 4. Voters may also submit their completed absentee ballots at their city polling places on Tuesday, March 8. If voters cannot personally drop off their absentee ballots, they may have a friend or family member drop off their absentee ballots at a local polling place. The friend or family member must also sign their name on the envelope where indicated, to avoid any processing problems.
