Where To Vote In San Juan Capistrano: Cast Your Ballot In 2020

·2 min read

SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO, CA — Voting in the November presidential election will look a little different this year, with many ballots already cast by mail. But you still can 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 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 San Juan Capistrano, vote centers are open until 8 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 3.

See the list below, or follow this link for specific location information.

La Sala Auditorium, 31495 El Camino Real

  • Election Day: 7 a.m. - 8 p.m.

Reata Park & Event Center, 28632 Ortega Hwy

  • Election Day: 7 a.m. - 8 p.m.

San Juan Capistrano Community Center, 25925 Camino Del Avion

  • Election Day: 7 a.m. - 8 p.m.

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.
