Census Operational Changes

In light of the COVID-19 outbreak, the U.S. Census Bureau has adjusted 2020 Census operations in order to:

  • Protect the health and safety of Census employees and the American public.
  • Implement guidance from federal, state, and local health authorities.
  • Ensure a complete and accurate count of all communities.

The Self-Response Phase has been extended to August 14, 2020. Learn more about other operational changes on the U.S. Census Bureau website.

In the meantime, it has never been easier to respond on your own, whether online, over the phone or by mail—all without having to meet a Census taker.

The Census is a population count of every person living in the United States and five U.S. territories. It’s conducted every 10 years by the U.S. Census Bureau and it help determine how billions of dollars in federal funding is distributed to states and communities every year. The next Census will take place beginning in April 2020.


Data from the 2020 Census will be used to determine your representation in Congress, as well as how funds are spent for roads, schools, hospitals, fire departments and more. It is very important that all residents be counted!


The Complete Count Committee is a volunteer committee dedicated to informing residents about the importance of the upcoming 2020 United States Census. The Committee will meet on a monthly basis to determine the most effective ways to raise awareness, answer questions and encourage community members to respond to the 2020 Census.

If you are interested in interacting with the diverse cross sections of the Alhambra community, and contributing to a great cause please consider volunteering. For any questions or concerns please contact Van Nguyen, Marketing and Communications Specialist at vnguyen@CityofAlhambra.org.

New Ballot Format

MeasureAL is the only local item on your ballot. Please make sure to find the local section of your ballot and participate.


An innovative voter-centered approach to voting for Los Angeles County begins in 2020. In March 2020, the Los Angeles County Registrar of Voters will be experimenting with a new ballot format and voting system – Voting Solutions for All People (VSAP) where new voting technology will be implemented and City-related elections and ballot measures appear in a different place on your ballot.  

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. The project seeks a collaborative approach to voting system design that will put voters at the center and maximize stakeholder participation. Through field research and coalition building, the RR/CC has pioneered a voter-centered approach to voting system design and development.

The entire ballot format and voting system will look different, and the City of Alhambra wants to make sure our voters understand these changes and can fully participate in the election. To get more information or to experience the new format, visit: the Los Angeles County Registrar of Voters at www.lavote.net .

Changes in State Voter Registration Laws

Exciting news! Due to recent changes in California voter registration laws, eligible Alhambra residents now have more time to register to vote and participate in the upcoming March 3 Municipal Election!  

If you’ve recently moved and need to re-register, or are registering to vote for the first time, you can register to vote on the same day of the election by visiting any voting center in Los Angeles County.  For more information, visit the Los Angeles County Registrar of Voters: www.lavote.net.
