Community Events and Public Engagement

The latest voting system prototype was on display in major events held last July. Election administrators, county officials across the state, various organizations and the general public got a firsthand look at the final system design and experienced the new voting experience in Los Angeles County. These events are a great opportunity for the public to interact with the prototype, learn more about the project and most importantly share their thoughts and recommendations.

The VSAP team gave prototype demonstrations at the California Association of Clerks and Election Officials (CACEO) Annual Conference in Redondo Beach on July 13 & 14, 2016. Los Angeles County Chief Executive Officer Sachi Hamai also dropped by to experience a simulated voting process.

The VSAP team introduced the new voting experience to the members of the Los Angeles Votes Committee, followed by a prototype demonstration on July 21, 2016.

Dean Logan, Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk, shared the collaborative and participative process of designing the new voting system at the 2016 NACo Annual Conference and Exposition in Long Beach on July 22, 2016.  Attendees interacted with the prototype and received more information about the project.

The VSAP team presented a status update to the members of the Quality & Productivity Commission of Los Angeles County on July 27, 2016. The Commission has supported and provided valuable input to the project since its early phases.

Stay tuned for developments, events and on-going activities in the project. We encourage your continued engagement in the process. Please email us if you have questions or concerns at vsap@rrcc.lacounty.gov.
