Early Voting Starts Soon

Early polling place voting will open Monday in eleven locations throughout Orange County. Voters will have an opportunity to cast their ballot during this week-long period.

New Ballot Collection Centers

We have added ten new collection centers that poll workers use to return election supplies on Election Night. We have expanded from 23 to 33 - reducing distances and speeding up the process.

Focusing on Poll Workers

New online program features experienced poll workers
Our video program, "Poll Worker Focus", which can be found in our Election Studio, features experienced poll workers talking about why they volunteer for Orange County elections.

Science of Voting Booth Allocation and Voter Turnout

Since 2006 we have been refining the method we use to allocate voting booths to polling places. Using extensive turnout data from multiple elections we allocate booths based on demand. This analysis allows us to allocate variable numbers of booths - which include 12, 8, 6 and 4 set-ups - reducing voter wait times.
