Los Angeles – Writers Guild of America West (WGAW) is partnering with Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk to provide safe in-person voting at the Writers Guild Theater in Beverly Hills. The theater will open its doors to voters beginning October 30th – November 3rd. The theater’s lobby will be expressly set up for voting in accordance with public health and safety guidelines established by the state and county.

“We’re very proud to be working with the LA County Registrar’s office to make our theater available to people who want to vote in person or drop their ballots off this election,” said WGAW President David A. Goodman. “While this most consequential of U.S. elections is hampered by disgraceful voter suppression campaigns across the country, we’re fortunate that here in LA County our officials want to ensure that all eligible voters have the opportunity to exercise this cherished American right.”

“I am pleased to announce Writers Guild Theater in Beverly Hills will serve as a Vote Center in the Presidential General Election,” said Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk Dean Logan. “Voters can now write their own story by safely casting their ballot in-person at the Theater. It’s partnerships like this that strengthen our democracy and community efforts to enfranchise safe and accessible in-person voting.”

Los Angeles County residents will be able to cast their ballot at any Vote Center in the county. WGAW will provide information to its members and the public about our Vote Center in this critical election.
