As the COVID-19 pandemic poses unprecedented challenges, the office of the Orange County Registrar of Voters is committed to administering secure, transparent elections while successfully maintaining public health guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and state and local officials.
HOW TO VOTE
For the 2020 Presidential General Election on Tuesday, November 3, every active registered voter in California will receive a vote-by-mail ballot in early October as part of the State's COVID-19 response plan. However, in-person voting locations will still be available. Voting-by-mail will help ensure safe physical distancing at voting locations throughout the State of California.
Vote-by-Mail Ballots can be returned through three different methods:
- Depositing the ballot at a Secure Ballot Drop Box;
- Drop off your ballot at a Voting Center, in person; and
- Mail your ballot back through USPS, no postage required. Ballots returned by mail must be postmarked by November 3, 2020.

Through the #Protect2020 campaign, the Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) is working together with national partners to identify, respond to, and mitigate the spread of disinformation (false or misleading information) that may impact the nation's elections. Reducing the circulation of disinformation requires engagement of all citizens who are part of the elections process. Here are some simple steps, provided by CISA, that can help stop the spread of disinformation:
- Rely on trusted sources. For election information and polling place health and safety, rely on official election websites and verified social media accounts;
- Be a prepared, participating, and patient voter. The 2020 election will look different from those in the past. Have a plan for casting your vote; understand your options, be it voting by mail, in-person early, or on Election Day. Get involved as a pollworker to support the democratic process. Recognize that official results will take longer than in past elections in some states;
- Think before you link. Check your sources before sharing content on social media or through email;
- Be careful what you post. Be mindful of what you are sharing or posting online-make sure you are not sharing content broadly that you mean only for close family and friends; and
- Be wary of manipulative content. Watch out for emotionally manipulative content designed to make us angry or sad. Take care when viewing or sharing content that uses sensational terms intended to cause mistrust and division.
