Prepare Prior to Voting on Election Day

Plan ahead prior to voting and prepare for possible congestion at polling places.

Here is some helpful voting information from the OC Registrar of Voters:

SANTA ANA, CA – It is unknown how many voters will vote at their polling place on Election Day, Tuesday, November 6, 2012. We have mailed an additional 200,000 vote-by-mail ballots when compared with 2008, so the polling place turnout is likely to be lower. Nevertheless, polling place voters should prepare for congestion during peak voting times and plan ahead prior to voting (peak voting times include 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.).

Voters should understand that due to limited parking at some locations and turnout possibly strong at certain locations, being prepared prior to going to the polling place is critical. This includes anticipating wait times, pre-marking sample ballots, and going to the assigned polling place. We appreciate voters’ patience and those who arrive at their polling place prior to 8 p.m. will be allowed to vote.

Voters who have requested a vote-by-mail ballot are encouraged to return their voted ballot to their polling place or to our office in Santa Ana. Postmarks do not count and those ballots received after 8 p.m. on Election Day will not be counted.
