Change Starts with Your Vote

Help us elect Democrats who will represent our interests and answer the pressing challenges of today.

2020 is the year we can make a difference.


The 2020 elections may be the most important in our lifetimes.

  • We have an executive branch that regularly flouts rules and will do seemingly anything to win the election.

  • A Republican-controlled Senate that won’t hold the President in check.

  • Millionaires and billionaires hoarding wealth while the middle class slowly disappears.   

  • A pandemic virus sweeping across our nation and no central response.

  • Extreme weather events destroying people's homes as climate change intensifies.

  • And the healthcare of millions of Americans may hang in the balance as the GOP relentlessly attacks Obamacare. 

We can stop them from causing more pain.  All we have to do is vote.

Confirming your Voter Registration:

​You can verify that you are properly registered to vote by using the Online Voter Registration Lookup tool at


Check Voter Registration Status (LA County)

If a match is found then your information is up-to-date and no action is needed. Your election materials and Vote by Mail ballot will automatically be mailed to your registered address (or mailing address, if one is on file for you).


If no match is found, then there is no voter registration matching the information entered – possibly due to a change in your residence address or name. The easiest solution is to register or re-register online.


The last day to register to vote online or by mail is October 19th. You may register to vote at any Vote Center starting on October 24th. Los Angeles county has same-day voter registration. You may register and vote at the same time.
