Early voting for the Tuesday, November 2nd, election has begun through the use of touchscreen voting machines.

Voting by touchscreen voting machines will continue until Friday, October 29th, says Conny McCormack, county registrar-recorder/county clerk.

The touchscreen voting machines nearest to the local area are at Culver City Hall, 9770 Culver Blvd., Culver City; daily from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The touchscreen ballot contains the same ballot that voters would see at their November 2nd polling places on Election Day.

Each voter’s registration is confirmed on site prior to voting. The voter will be issued a “smart card” to insert into the touchscreen unit, which activates the voter’s individual ballot.

The voter moves through the touchscreen options on a screen by touching the voter’s choices.

All touchscreen units are equipped to allow voters who are visually impaired or blind to vote independently by the use of audio headsets or large size text.
