LIST: Hollywood Bowl, Dorothy Chandler Pavilion added to SoCal voting centers for November election


The Hollywood Bowl and the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion at the downtown Music Center were added today to the list of venues that will serve as voting centers for the November election.

Both venues will be open beginning Oct. 24 for people to cast their ballots, regardless of the voter's city of residence.

Various large-scale venues have been designated as vote centers for the upcoming election in an effort to provide safe locations for people to cast ballots while maintaining social distancing during the coronavirus pandemic.

Other venues that will be serving as vote centers include Dodger Stadium, SoFi Stadium, Staples Center and the Forum.

Hollywood Bowl and Music Center officials said the vote centers will adhere to all county health mandates, including the availability of hand sanitizers at all entries and exits and inside the center. Ballot Marking Devices and commonly touched surfaces will be cleaned and disinfected after each voter, officials said.

There will be free parking to any registered voter in Los Angeles County over a five-day period, according to a press release from the LA Dodgers.

The Dodgers are the first MLB team to make their stadium available for voting.  

 The Dodger Stadium voting site is a joint effort between the Dodgers and More Than A Vote, a non-profit coalition of that Los Angeles Lakers LeBron James helped create. The nonprofit is Black athletes and artists working together to combat systemic, racist voter suppression.
