Pasadena voters who live in the Arroyo Seco area and who intend to cast ballots at two polling places near the Rose Bowl Stadium are reminded to go to the polls early to avoid traffic and possible delays due to the Copa America soccer match on June 7, 2016.
As an alternative, voters may wish to request an online “Will Call Ballot” for pickup at Pasadena City Hall, 100 N. Garfield Ave., by visiting the County of Los Angeles Registrar Recorder/County Clerk website www.lavote.net or by calling the County at (562) 466-1323. Will-call ballot requests generally take 48 hours to process.
The pilot “Will Call Ballot” program is offered locally by the County through a partnership with the Pasadena City Clerk’s Office and is available at Pasadena City Hall now through the close of business on Monday, June 6, 2016.
The program includes both weekday and weekend early voting opportunities, 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, June 4 and Sunday, June 5. Ballots MUST be pre-ordered for “Will Call” pickup at City Hall.
The two polling places within the Arroyo Seco that might be impacted on Election Day due to the Copa America soccer match include the Pasadena Fire Station 38, 1150 Linda Vista Ave., and a private residence at 1725 Casitas Ave.
All polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 8 p.m., Tuesday, June 7, 2016. All voters are urged to go to the polls early, especially in the Arroyo Seco area before 4:30 p.m., to avoid traffic and possible delays.
Limited, short-term parking will be available adjacent to each polling location. For voters casting ballots at Fire Station 38, please review parking signage near the polling location and park only in designated parking areas as this is a working fire station that must be available to respond to emergency calls.
The Pasadena City Clerk’s Office is also available to answer questions and provide additional information by calling: (626) 744-4124. More info about the soccer match can be found online at www.rosebowlstadium.com, including information about the clear bag policy for entrance.
