In February 2019, the Orange County Board of Supervisors voted to change the County’s voting model from traditional polling locations to vote centers starting in 2020. The Board of Supervisors' decision makes Orange County the seventh California county to adopt vote centers since the state legislature passed a bill to allow the new election model in 2016.
Vote Centers mean more voting options for voters - vote centers will be open for voting and registration for up to 10 days prior to election day and voters will have the opportunity to cast their ballot at any vote center throughout Orange County. Also, with this new voting model, all voters will receive a vote-by-mail ballot in the mail prior to the election, and those ballots can be mailed back or dropped off at any Vote Center or Ballot Drop Box location.
With the new election model, voters will have more options to vote early and on Election Day to match their busy schedule:
