Published on Monday, September 13, 2021 | 5:44 pm

Pasadena Transit and Metro will be offering free rides on trains and bike-sharing systems on Election Day Tuesday, joining already-free buses in ensuring people can cast their ballots in the gubernatorial recall election.

Train rides will be free from midnight to 11:50 p.m. Tuesday. Metro buses are already running fare-free during the pandemic. Metro’s Bike Share system will offer free rides for the first 30 minutes, followed by a cost of $1.75 per half-hour.

Free rides will also be offered by the Glendora Transportation Division, the Los Angeles County Department of Public Works, County Shuttles and Montebello Bus Lines.

Official ballot drop-boxes are available at 10 Metro transit locations.

In Pasadena, vote-by-mail drop boxes have been installed at City Hall and at Brookside, Grant, Victory, and Washington Parks. According to, there are more than 400 secure drop boxes located throughout Los Angeles County. The boxes have been placed at the same locations they were at during the presidential election.

The L.A. County Registrar-Recorder’s Office began sending out vote-by-mail ballots to registered voters earlier this month.

Voters will be asked to answer two questions on the ballot: 1) Shall Gov. Gavin Newsom be recalled (removed) from the office of Governor? 2) Candidates to succeed Gavin Newsom as Governor if he is recalled (followed by a list of candidates to select from).
