Regional ballot drop boxes will be available fore the 2021 Neighborhood Council Elections, according to Los Angeles City Clerk Holly L. Wolcott.

The initiative will begin with Region 5’s drop boxes open from 9:00 a.m., Friday, March 12, through Tuesday (Election Day), March 16, 2021, 8:00 p.m.

Due to public health and safety concerns as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the City Clerk – Election Division implemented an all Vote-By-Mail (VBM) voting model for all 2021 NC Elections. In order to receive a ballot, an application must be submitted through our online portal at: VBM Application Portal. VBM ballots, instructions, and prepaid return envelopes will be mailed to voters.

In addition to returning the voted NC ballot by mail, voters can also securely drop off their ballot at assigned regional drop box locations throughout the rolling, five-day drop off periods. All ballots must be returned inside the prepaid City Clerk Ballot Return Envelope in order to be processed. For a list of NC ballot drop off locations, visit:

Please note the United States Postal Service (USPS) recommends returning ballots early to avoid any possible delays. However, if a ballot is postmarked by the regional Election Day and received within 10 days, it will be accepted.
