Angelenos will be able to send in vote-by-mail ballots on Election Day and still have their votes counted, under an ordinance approved by the City Council Wednesday.

The rule change, approved 12-0 by the council, matches up the city’s election laws to a new state law signed in September by Gov. Jerry Brown and allows vote-by-mail ballots to be postmarked on Election Day and received within three days.

Los Angeles residents voting in city elections had been required to get their ballots to the city by Election Day.
