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.
