(COACHELLA VALLEY, CA) – The Riverside County Registrar of Voters is urging residents who want to vote in person to cast their ballots early — ahead of the Nov. 3rd presidential general election — during a special four-day period that begins Saturday.
Election voting is different this year. Voters can cast ballots in person at Voter Assistance Centers that will be open Oct. 31 through Nov. 3, 2020. (To see a list of all the centers, including the Coachella Valley, click here or see the list below.) The centers will be open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday through Monday and 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, election day.
Each Voter Assistance Center will serve as a fully functioning voting location that mirrors a traditional polling place, and every ballot cast during the four-day window is processed and counted the same way, according to the registrar’s office.
By voting in advance of Nov. 3, voters can expect less wait time, the registrar’s office said.
(Call the registrar’s office at 951-486-7200 if you have questions about your eligibility to vote. More voter information is available at: http://www.voteinfo.net)
Nearly 450,000 mail-in ballots have been returned to the Riverside County Registrar of Voters office as of Thursday, just over one-third of the total sent out countywide for Tuesday’s general election.
A total 1,243,154 mail-in ballots were distributed, intended for every one of the county’s registered voters. Compared to four years ago, the registration roll has increased 22 percent, according to the registrar’s office.
In October 2016, there were 1,022,375 registered voters in the county.
