Instead of traditional polling places, Orange County will be setting up Vote Centers across the county as well as multiple Ballot Drop Box locations.
Orange County (only) information to remember:
Vote Centers: The new Vote Centers will open 11 days before the election. At any Vote Center in Orange County, you may: drop off your ballot, request a new ballot if you lost or damaged the one you received in the mail, request a Presidential Ballot, request a Ballot printed in another language.
