County Registrar Michael Vu encouraged voters to return mail-in ballots early so they can be processed before Election Day.

"The returned mail ballots will already be processed so when the clock strikes 8 p.m. on Election Night, we can immediately start counting them," he said. "Those results will be released just minutes afterward. As with any election, the more ballots processed beforehand, the quicker the election results."

Those who miss the mail-in ballot deadline can vote in person at the registrar's office between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday until Election Day when voting hours change to 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

The office will also be open between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. June 2-3 for weekend voting.
