New Voting System  — Town Hall Presentations


Come Learn about the New Voting System for the Next Election on March 3, 2020

Interested in getting a sneak-peek into LA County’s new and improved voting system? Come learn about the new voting system, Voting Solutions for All People (VSAP) at two special town hall presentations: 

  • Monday, November 4th  town hall presentation at the El Segundo Council Chamber, City Hall, 350 Main Street at 6 p.m. 
  • Wednesday, November 20th town hall presentation at the Joslyn Center, 339 Sheldon Street at 6 p.m. 

The VSAP presentations will cover all aspects of the new voting experience. County representatives will explain how the "Ballot Marking Device" (BMD) works and its security and accessibility features. Voters will learn about the 11-day voting period, option to use the "Interactive Sample Ballot" (ISB) and the Vote Center model.

As a reminder, your voting date has changed and now aligns and consolidates with the statewide California general election, per a change in the statewide elections code. El Segundo registered voters will vote on the first Tuesday, after the first Monday, in March of even numbered years.

The next statewide election and City of El Segundo general municipal election for three council members, city clerk and city treasurer positions, will take place on Tuesday, March 3, 2020.

We are working hard to ensure that El Segundo voters are prepared and understand the new LA County VSAP voting system. These two town halls are part of our ongoing efforts to inform the public of the new system and answer any questions that you may have.

Please contact the City Clerk's Office at 310-524-2307 or with any questions or additional information you may need. Thank you! 

Voting Experience Changes

Voting Solutions for All People (VSAP)

The Voting Solutions for All People (VSAP) was developed by the Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk (RR/CC) in 2009 to address an aging voting system and an increasingly large and complex electorate. Since the inception of VSAP, Los Angeles County voters have been the focal point of our design direction. Over 5,000 voters in the County, from all walks of life, participated in focus groups and research activities that helped create the optimal voting experience. VSAP will introduce many new features and components that provides greater accessibility, convenience and time to voting. Please visit the VSAP website for additional background and information.
