Important Information about LA County's New Election Procedure

There's more than just the change in the date of the Primary Election from its traditional first Tuesday in June to March 3, 2020. I was fortunate to be invited to an informational meeting hosted by the WLA Democratic Club where Dean Logan, the LA County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk, explained all that is new.

Dean Logan explains the new voting system
Here are the highlights and what you need to know:

  • You will be able to vote by going to any of the 1,000 Voting Centers in LA County, so gone are the days of having to vote at a specific precinct.
  • You can register to vote, and vote at any of the 1,000 Voting Centers in LA County.
  • March 3, 2020 is Election Day, but voting will actually begin 10 days before Election Day, on Saturday, February 22, 2020.
  • A new Ballot Marking Device will replace the traditional Ink-A-Dot system.
  • You will be able to make your choices in advance on your smartphone, and scan them into the Ballot Marking Device at the Voting Center, saving a lot of time.

Here's a video explaining the changes:

The system may have changed, but the principal remains the same - You have to vote!

Deputy District Attorney David Berger to run for Judge of the Superior Court in 2020

I am very pleased to announce that I have, today, filed the necessary paperwork with the Los Angeles County Registrar/Recorder to run for Office No. 80, one of the 12 open seats for Judge of the Superior Court in the March 3, 2020 Primary Election.

My decision to run was made easier by the many messages I received in the past few days from the many good people who have encouraged me to enter the race.

The Primary Election is much earlier than in previous years, however, I am confident that I can meet the challenge and I look forward to running a spirited campaign.

I am very grateful for the tremendous support I received in the past, and it is my sincere hope that my candidacy will attract the support and approval of the electorate.
