Tomorrow is Election Day

Tomorrow is the last day to cast a ballot in the 2024 President Primary Election. As a reminder, there are four ways you can vote by Tuesday, March 5:

  1. Mark and place your Vote-By-Mail ballot in the mail
  2. Return it at one of our 122 secure Ballot Drop Boxes
  3. Deliver to one of our 183 Vote Centers
  4. Vote in person at a Vote Center

When marking your ballot, use a black or blue pen to completely fill in the rectangle next to your selection of preferred candidate or choice of yes or no for a measure.

If mailing your ballot, no postage is necessary. Your ballot envelope must be signed and postmarked by March 5.

If you are dropping off your Vote-By-Mail ballot or want to vote in person, your deadline is 8 p.m. on March 5. Find a convenient voting location at ocvote.gov/voting.

Our 183 Vote Centers across the county remain open today until 8 p.m. Tomorrow, for Election Day, they are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Twenty-five of our Vote Centers have a drive thru ballot drop off in the parking lot for convenient drop off from your vehicle.

Visit a Vote Center to drop off your marked Vote-By-Mail ballot or check in to receive, mark and cast an in-person ballot.

All Vote Centers in Orange County meet accessibility standards, are conveniently located throughout the county with free parking, and offer resources for voters with disabilities, including accessible voting equipment to mark your ballot, American Sign Language interpreter via video conferencing, and curbside voting.

Voters that are unable to mark a ballot may bring up to two individuals to assist in voting.

Language assistance is available at all Vote Centers as well. All election information and ballots are translated into Chinese, Korean, Spanish, and Vietnamese. Translated reference ballots in Farsi (Persian), Gujarati, Hindi, Japanese, and Tagalog for eligible precincts are also available.

How to Register and Vote Provisionally
How to Register and Vote Provisionally

If you missed the voter registration deadline, you can still register and vote in this election.

Known as same-day voter registration, you can visit a Vote Center, including the one in the Registrar of Voters’ Santa Ana office, to fill out a conditional voter registration form before 8 p.m. tomorrow, March 5.  

After completing the conditional voter registration form, you will be issued a provisional ballot to mark your voting choices.

Once you are done marking your ballot, you will seal it in a provisional ballot envelope. This will allow us to confirm you have not already voted in another California county before we count your ballot.

If you complete the voter registration form online, you must go to the Registrar of Voters’ office or a Vote Center to complete the registration process and receive a provisional ballot.

If you have any questions about conditional registration and voting provisionally, visit our website at ocvote.gov/CVR or call our Voter Assistance Hotline at 714-567-7600 or 888-OCVOTES (888- 628-6837).  

Protecting the Vote at Ballot Drop Boxes
Protecting the Vote at Ballot Drop Boxes

At least two County of Orange employees will be stationed at each of our 122 Ballot Drop Boxes throughout the county during the final five to six hours of voting tomorrow, March 5.

This is our Ballot Drop Box Strike Force Team.  These members assist voters with dropping off their Vote-By-Mail ballots, provide traffic control, and ensure no electioneering takes place within 100 feet of the Ballot Drop Box (see next article on electioneering).

Their most important job occurs at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, March 5. Each Strike Force Team will close and lock their Ballot Drop Box promptly at 8 p.m. or after the last voter in line by 8 p.m. has dropped off their ballot.

To find a Ballot Drop Box near to you, visit ocvote.gov/dropbox. To receive an email or text notification that the Registrar of Voters has received your Vote-By-Mail ballot, sign up at ocvote.gov/track.

Electioneering and Voting Do Not Mix
Electioneering and Voting Do Not Mix

Electioneering inside a Vote Center and within 100 feet of the entrance to a building containing a Vote Center, a Ballot Drop Box, drive-thru ballot drop off or curbside voting location is strictly prohibited. Violations can lead to fines and/or imprisonment.

Electioneering includes wearing clothing that displays the name of a candidate or measure on the ballot. Asking a person to vote for or against any candidate or ballot measure is prohibited within 100 feet of any voting location. Petitions also cannot be circulated in the electioneering-free zone. Blocking access to a voting location is prohibited as well.

For a full list of prohibited electioneering activities, visit our website at ocvote.gov/electioneering.

To report electioneering, call our Voter Assistance Hotline at 714-567-7600 or 888-OCVOTES (888- 628-6837).
