SANTA CRUZ, Calif. (KION) Voting was even easier this election day for Santa Cruz County residents. For the first time in the county, every voting poll allowed for same-day voter registration. Residents are able to register, and then vote up until the polls close at 8 p.m. Tuesday evening.
There were also 120,000 vote-by-mail ballots sent out this year. As of 12 p.m. nearly 30,000 of those were processed. However, on election day you can turn in those mail-in ballots to 10 different ballot drop off locations including outside the county building in Santa Cruz.
This afternoon at 4:30 on KION, Drew Andre will have a live report from UC Santa Cruz where one of the polling locations has been packed all day.
