Tuesday is the last day to vote in the 2018 midterm elections. Voting will take place at polling stations around Los Angeles County, and ballots may be mailed in as well — but they must be postmarked no later than Tuesday to be counted.
Election-day rides on Metro buses and trains are free; ride-sharing services have also announced plans to cut their fares on trips to and from polling places. Parking restrictions will be relaxed within a block of each polling place in the city of L.A. Polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 8 p.m. Voters are advised to go early in case of long lines, although the rules permit anyone already in line when the polls close to cast their ballots and complete the process.
