Hi, it's Steven from the SCOR Desk. I would be happy to volunteer to help with the early voting..... I can also recruit Carl Lekander. :)

Your first paragraph is ambiguous. You say that there are six locations for early voting, but you don’t give these locations. In the next sentence, you list Vote Centers that will be opened in Election Day, but you don’t say if these are also the locations for early voting.
Please clarify.
Thank you,
Joanne Suttile

If I drop off my ballot at a polling center or a drop off box, HOW and WHEN will my ballot votes be counted? Each day between October 30 and November 3 ?, on November 3 (election day)? or AFTER November 3? The answer to t his question will determine how I vote, since I want to make sure my votes are tabulated and included in the vote count on Election Day evening.

All ballots dropped off at a drop box or Vote Center (a polling place) before election day will be counted before election day and added to election day totals. You can track your ballot online to see its location and status in real time: https://www.ocvote.com/track.

Clarification needed for General Election, i.e. voting presidential. When does early voting begin? Where can I vote in person early?

Will there be someone or something protecting the ballot drop-boxes at Pavion and Flo-Jo parks? It seems they would be vulnerable to being destroyed or tampered with if someone wanted to pour something corrosive in it or drop a lit match through the slot. We’ll drop off our vote at the City Hall location jic.
