Across U.S., Stadiums, Landmarks Illuminated In Blue To Honor Essential Workers

The STAPLES Center in Los Angeles is officially part of the list of local sporting venues that will serve as a voting location for the upcoming November election.

The L.A. Lakers, L.A. County Registrar and AEG, the company that owns the downtown L.A. arena, have reportedly announced this move over the weekend.

This move follows the announcement of the Dodgers Stadium hosting a polling place along with the Forum.

Voters can cast their ballots at Staples Center starting Oct. 30 through Election Day on Nov. 3. People can also submit their mail ballots at an official vote-by-mail dropbox location at the arena.

Secretary of State Alex Padilla says large venues like the Staples Center can serve as a safe voting option during the COVID-19 pandemic.

All registered voters in California can expect to receive mail ballots, which will be mailed starting Oct. 5. They can sign up for updates on the status of their ballots from the state at

california.ballottrax.net/voter.
