On December 6, 2016 the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors approved a Special Countywide Election for March 7, 2017, the same date as the city's General Municipal Election. The San Dimas City Council made the decision to consolidate its March 7, 2017 General Election with the Los Angeles County March 7, 2017 Special Election.
Consolidating with the County will eliminate duplication of some of the processes involved with running an election and will be less impactful to the voters. Some of the elements affected would be securing polling locations, recruiting poll workers, processing ballots and ballot material.
The County will be coordinating all election procedures including mailing of sample ballots and vote by mail requests, coordinating precincts and poll workers and counting of the ballots. If you are interested in becoming a poll worker please contact the Los Angeles County Registrar Recorder's Office at (800) 815-2666, option 7; or visit their website at www.lavote.net.
On the night of the election, results can be obtained in a variety of ways. They can be viewed on the City's access channel KWST channel 3 on Frontier and Charter cable networks, the city's website: www.cityofsandimas.com or by calling (909) 394-6200.
