Vote Centers In Lake Elsinore & Wildomar: Where To Vote 2020

LAKE ELSINORE-WILDOMAR, CA — Voting in the November presidential election may look a little different this year, with many ballots already cast by mail. But you can still cast or hand-off your ballot in person this year — and you can do it early or on Election Day.

Dubbed “vote centers” rather than “polling places,” physical voting locations will also be a bit different than in years past.

The amount of in-person polling places in California will be limited compared to previous elections, in accordance with a law signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom in August, but some vote centers already opened as early as Oct. 24.

Centers are required to remain open Saturday through Monday, Nov. 2, for at least eight hours each day and from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Election Day.

Although every registered and active voter in California was already mailed a ballot in October, polling places will be open for same-day voter registration, for those who need assistance with language or disabilities — or for those who simply want to witness the historic, Election Day unfold.

In Lake Elsinore and Wildomar, vote centers are opening Saturday. See the list below, or follow this link for specific location information.

These changes to voting in California this year are to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. Vote center volunteers and employees are required to space voting booths, sanitize surfaces and encourage those waiting in line to socially distance.

Voters are encouraged to arrive with a face covering, but those who show up without will be provided one.

In California, more than 21 million ballots were mailed to voters, and 7 million ballots already are cast, according to election officials.
