California sets in-person voting rules under virus threat


LOS ANGELES (AP) California is sending every registered voter a mail-in ballot for the November election, but the state will also establish hundreds of locations for people who want - or need - to vote in-person.

The decision to send every voter a mail-in ballot was prompted last month by health concerns tied to the coronavirus.

Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom says the state will also have a range of options for in-person voting. Counties must open a minimum of one in-person voting location for every 10,000 voters beginning the Saturday before Election Day.

Republicans have been critical of the state's plans for November.
