About one-third of all California eligible voters have voted by mail, and more than 100 in-person voting centers in LA opened over the weekend. LA County Registrar Recorder Dean Logan says 2020 voter participation is already shattering previous records. 

“We’re at about 50,000 voters that have voted in person. And you add that onto the 1.7 million LA County voters who have already returned a vote-by-mail ballot, and there’s a strong indication that people are heeding that call and showing up to vote early in this election,” Logan says.
