Learn about the new voting changes this year, and how to conveniently cast your ballot
The new way to vote in Orange County: Vote Centers mean many more options for voters. Elections are no longer a one-day event. Voting begins the month before any election day when every voter will receive a vote-by-mail ballot. Take advantage of the alternatives available to avoid congestion – from voting at home, drive-thru ballot drop-off, in-person options, returning your ballot via the United States Postal Service, or personally deliver your ballot to the OC Registrar of Voters.
Every voter will receive a vote-by-mail ballot that can be filled out and mailed back or delivered to the new ballot drop boxes. In Rancho Santa Margarita, two ballot drop boxes are conveniently located at the Rancho Santa Margarita Branch Library and Calvary Chapel Rancho Santa Margarita.
You can also vote in person at nearly 200 OC Vote Centers, which include the following RSM locations:
Bell Tower Regional Community Center (4 Day)
Rancho Santa Margarita Branch Library (11 Day)
Trabuco Canyon Water District (4 Day)
