Same Day Voter Registration is available during the Early Voting period at all Early Voting sites. If completing Same-Day Registration, one must bring a valid form of government ID (does not need to be a photo id, but must show residence in Orange County), and must vote during Early Voting rather than on Election Day.
BY-MAIL VOTER REGISTRATION DEADLINE
The voter registration deadline is 25 days prior to an election, falling on a Friday, at 5:00 p.m. Applications must be delivered to the Board of Elections by 5:00 p.m. or must be postmarked by 5:00 p.m.
Orange County also offers absentee voting by mail to all Orange County registered voters who wish to vote by mail rather than in person at a one-stop early voting site or on Election Day. Absentee ballot requests may be submitted using the required Absentee Ballot Request Form, either in person (at the above address) or by mail (at the Post Office Box listed above).
