Election observation materials and trainings will be provided to the public in advance of the March 3, 2020 Presidential Primary Election.
SANTA ANA, CA – Each election in Orange County, the Orange County Registrar of Voters invites members of the public to observe the election process. Election observers are permitted to observe Vote Centers operations, including opening and closing procedures, view all activities at the central counting site, view mail ballot and provisional ballot processing, and much more.
With the implementation of the new Vote Center model, the Orange County Registrar of Voters is taking several steps to provide updated information on election observation to the public. In preparation, the 2020 Election Observer Handbook is available in the Orange County Registrar of Voters’ online Election Library. There will also be two Election Observer Guidelines Trainings for attendees to learn about the do’s and don’ts for election observers and how voting and elections will be changing with the implementation of Vote Centers.
