Vote at CSUDH

In our ongoing effort to support the campus and the greater community's access to our nation's democratic process, CSUDH will serve as a four-day Vote Center and a month-long Vote by Mail Drop-Off location for the 2020 primary election in March.

L.A. County Vote Center

The Vote Center on the CSUDH campus will be located in the Extended Education Auditorium (EE1213) from Saturday, February 29 through Tuesday, March 3.

Parking for voters will be free in Lot 3 during the dates and times in which the CSUDH Vote Center is open. View a map of the voting and free parking location [PDF]

Vote Center Days and Hours

  • Saturday, February 29, 2020: 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.
  • Sunday, March 1, 2020: 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.

The March primary and general election will be the first time that multi-day regional Vote Centers will replace single-day polling places in Los Angeles County, allowing voters to cast their ballot at any Vote Center in the county. This change was made in compliance with the California Voters Choice Act of 2016.

All residents of Los Angeles County who are registered to vote will be able to vote at the CSUDH Vote Center.
