For the first time in its near 86-year history, Santa Anita Park will serve as a Los Angeles County voting center for this year's general election. The first floor of Santa Anita's clubhouse will be open for voting Friday, Oct. 30 through Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 3.
Santa Anita will provide a safe and convenient location for local residents to exercise their civic duty while maintaining the necessary social distancing, offering easy vehicular accessibility, ample parking and a spacious venue with large public restrooms.
Voting hours will be from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Oct. 30 & 31 and Nov. 1 & 2. Election Day voting hours will be expanded from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Voters will enter the track via Gate 5 on the northeast end of the property and can park near the Club House entrance.
“The LA County Registrar-Recorder and County Clerk have put together a Safe Presidential Election Plan to ensure that public health guidelines are adhered to in all voting centers across LA County and we're very proud to have been selected,” said Pete Siberell, Santa Anita Director of Community Services and Special Projects. “Our Autumn Meet live racing, which begins this Friday, will end on Oct. 25, so we are pleased to be able to offer these services to our community without impacting our racing program.”
