Natl Voter Registration Day 09-22-20 16:21 DC
Today is National Voter Registration Day, and voting will be different for many voters because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Santa Cruz volunteers created a voting caravan with cars decked out reminding people to register.
A record number of Santa Cruz County residents have registered to vote. The 167,000 current registrants number about 10,000 more than for the 2016 presidential election.
Volunteers set up booths at five different libraries around the county Tuesday to answer questions about voting and have people sign up.
In this election, every voter will receive a ballot in the mail. Voters can then mail their ballot in, drop it off at one of the 15 ballot boxes around the county or vote in person during election week.
For those voting by mail, ballots must be postmarked by election day on Nov. 3 for it to be counted, and it will be counted as long as it arrives by Nob. 20.
