Los Angeles County Mails 1.3 Million Notices to Voters Registered with No Party Preference
No Party Preference Voters Must Request Ballots to include Presidential Candidates for the 2024 Presidential Primary Election
LOS ANGELES – Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk (RR/CC) Dean C. Logan announced that on Saturday, December 2, 2023, the RR/CC began mailing notices to 1.3 million voters registered with No Party Preference. The notice includes crucial information on how to request a ballot with presidential candidates in the March 5, 2024, Presidential Primary Election.
In a Presidential Primary Election, the political party determines whether No Party Preference voters may request their party’s ballot — a process commonly known as “crossover” voting.
In the upcoming Presidential Primary Election, the American Independent, Democratic, and Libertarian parties allow No Party Preference voters to crossover and request their party’s ballot to vote for one of their presidential candidates.
The mailed notice contains a postage-paid Crossover Request Form, which voters can complete and return by placing it back in the mail. Alternatively, No Party Preference voters can request a party’s ballot online through the Crossover Ballot Request Application, by calling (800) 815-2666, option 2, or while voting in-person at a Vote Center during the voting period for the election.
The Green, Peace & Freedom, and Republican parties have closed their Primary ballot, meaning voters must be registered with a specific party to vote for their presidential candidates. No Party Preference voters who want to receive a ballot for one of these parties must change their party preference by re-registering to vote. Voters can update their party preference by re-registering online, submitting a voter registration application, or while voting in person at a Vote Center during the voting period for the election.
Voters requesting crossover ballots or re-registering with a party preference are encouraged to complete their request or re-register as soon as possible or by January 3, 2024, to ensure the initial ballot mailed aligns with the voter’s preference. However, the RR/CC will continue to accept crossover requests and process registration updates throughout the entire voting period.
Information and resources for No Party Preference voters are available on our dedicated landing page at LAVOTE.GOV.
