Online voter registration went live in California in mid September. A flurry of voter registrations followed (62,527) setting an all-time record for registrations in a short period in Orange County.
Sorting Opened Ballots
Sorting ballots down to the precinct level saves time and money We have been opening and extracting vote-by-mail ballots since last Friday. As of today we have opened 330,067 out of 377,112 received to-date. We sort these opened ballots down to the city and precinct level prior to counting.
Voters arriving at our offices are directed to one of three outdoor lanes where we can handle the majority of their requests, including emergency voting, vote-by-mail ballot drop-off and general assistance. As of today we have received 970 vote-by-mail ballots and assisted hundreds of additional voters outdoors. This operation will continue this weekend and through Election Night.
