Secretary of State Alex Padilla to Join Orange County Registrar and City Officials for “Roadshow to Vote Centers 2020” Launch

SANTA ANA, CA - Secretary of State Alex Padilla will be joining the Orange County Registrar of Voters Neal Kelley, alongside Orange County city officials, to launch “Roadshow to Vote Centers 2020.” Earlier this year, the Orange County Board of Supervisors voted to adopt the Voter’s Choice Act for the 2020 elections. Under this modern election model, every registered voter will automatically receive their ballot by mail and have options for how to return their ballot: by mail, to any ballot drop box in the county, or at any vote center in the county convenient to them.

Orange County will be transitioning to the Voter’s Choice Act for the Presidential Primary on March 3, 2020. In addition to conducting public meetings as required by law, the “Roadshow to Vote Centers 2020” monthly update meetings are designed to raise awareness about changes to the voting and elections process by partnering with government officials, political parties, nonprofit organizations, and community advocates.

Following the press conference, Secretary Padilla and Kelley will provide an overview of the Voter’s Choice Act and vote centers, current local planning efforts, and an overview of what to expect leading up to the March 3, 2020 Presidential Primary Election. This meeting is open to the public.
