If you haven’t sent in your vote-by-mail ballot yet or just prefer to vote in person, your procrastination might pay off—assuming that you love stickers, and really who doesn’t?
The standard “I Voted” sticker becomes a ubiquitous accessory this time of year, whether as a simple point of pride or to nab free food. But for the 2020 election, some of L.A.’s most recognizable venues are turning them into limited edition pieces of art. A bunch of L.A. landmarks are doubling as voting centers right now, and the area’s major sports stadiums and arenas in particular are using the opportunity to deck out “I Voted’ stickers with team colors and logos.
This year marks the first election in which L.A. County residents can cast their ballots at any voting center in the county, so you don’t need to live Downtown to nab a Lakers stickers.

But if you’re after one of those sweet, sweet stickers, you’ll want to choose from one of the spots below (though just a quick note: many of those stickers are in limited supply, so vote early).

You can also drop off your mail-in ballot there. Awesome, wow!
