LOS ANGELES (TBEN) – This weekend, more voters will be faced with a historic choice – on which Los Angeles iconic entertainment or sport venue should they choose to vote in the 2020 presidential election?
This year, most traditional neighborhood polls have given way to county-wide voting centers where any registered voter can vote in person, whether or not they live in the area. Some of these voting centers are in entertainment and sports venues that have been closed for months due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Some voting centers will open on Friday, including Dodger Stadium, Banc of California Stadium and Magic Castle in Hollywood. An early in-person vote could also give football fans a chance to see the last kid in the NFL block, SoFi Stadium in Inglewood.

But other polling centers have been open since last weekend and voters found the experience easy, safe and newsworthy on social media.

Voters who voted at Staples Center were thrilled to receive “I Voted” stickers from the Lakers and Kings, in addition to those they received from LA County.
My ballot got wet from my cats so I went to the staple center and walked in and out with my signed and delivered mail. I also have free lakers and kings loot and I was inside Staples Center which I didn’t have to do all year so that was a bonus. VOTE! pic.twitter.com/fJNWnOuZhP

Masks are required at most in-person polling centers, most of which will be open all weekend from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. until polling day, when they will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Completed ballots can also be dropped off at one of these polling centers.
