The voting turnout in the upcoming California Primary could be brisk if the early in-person voting ballots being cast at the county Registrar Recorder’s office in Norwalk are indicative of public interest.
Registrar officials said through Tuesday, May 31, 206 people had turned in early ballots at their office. That figure is up from the 158 persons who filed early ballots in 2012, and the 155 early walk-in ballots in 2008.
Those figures do not include mail-in ballots that have been received.
The public can continue to vote early instead of waiting for Election Day on Tuesday, June 7. The Registrar’s office, located at 12400 Imperial Highway in Norwalk, accepts walk-ins between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekends.
The office will also be available for voting from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Election Day in case voters cannot make to their assigned polling location. The final day to vote is June 7.
