Election integrity and security

Election security is a top priority for the Orange County Registrar of Voters.

Registered voters have four easy and secure options to return their ballots this election season. You can send your Vote-By-Mail ballot using the U.S. Postal Service, place it in one of the 121 ballot drop boxes located throughout the county, bring it to one of the 181 Vote Centers or vote in-person at a Vote Center.

All voted ballots are collected and transported by two-person Registrar of Voters teams, always maintaining strict chain of custody. And, the location of each ballot collection team is monitored at all times.

You choose the return method with which you’re most comfortable. We make sure they are all secure.

They will now regularly retrieve ballots from the ballot drop boxes, with increasing frequency as Election Day approaches. Starting October 29, they will also collect ballots from Vote Centers.
