What's NEW in this Election?

Vote Centers

Traditional polling places will be replaced by vote centers. Voters will have the freedom to cast a ballot in-person at any vote center in their county instead of being tied to a single polling location. Vote centers look and feel like polling places, but provide additional modern features to make voting easy and convenient. 

At any vote center in a participating county, a voter may:

  • Vote in-person
  • Drop off their ballot
  • Get a replacement ballot
  • Vote using an accessible voting machine
  • Get help and voting material in multiple languages
  • Register to vote or update their voter registration

UCI Vote Center

The voting hours for the UCI – Mesa Court Vote Center are as follows:

  • Friday, October 30 – Monday, November 2: 8AM – 8PM
  • Tuesday, November 3: 7AM – 8PM
