March 3rd is Primary Election. Fresno County voters ‘happy to vote early’

Local News

FRESNO, California (KGPE) – California is two days away from the Primary Election. In Fresno County, there are now 53 Vote Venters open for voters to cast their ballots ahead of Super Tuesday.

This March 3 is the Primary Election, here in Fresno County, if you haven’t filled out your ballot or are worried about the long lines now is the time to get it done early.

“I’m very happy to vote early and get it done and know that my votes in there before Tuesday,” Fresno voter, Sara Johantgen said.

Thanks to the Voters Choice Act, voters can now vote at their convenience and hassle-free at any of the new 53 Vote Centers.

“The old model you had one day to vote, I assigned you to a place and if you didn’t go to the right place, you didn’t get the right ballot and you had to vote provisionally, all that kind of goes away now, you walk into any Vote Center, it has all the technology and information as if it were my downtown office, we can look you up, we can straighten out any problems and print you your ballot,” said Brandi Orth the Fresno County Clerk and Registrar of Voters.

So far, Fresno County voters say they are liking the new system. 

“I had missed the deadline so I was really happy to see that I could come down here and exchange my ballot so I can vote like I wanted,” Johantgen said.

In Fresno County, Orth says there are 471,000 registered voters. As of Saturday, she says 94,000 have cast their ballots. 

Voters can vote by mailing in their ballots, dropping them off at one of these drop boxes or going to a Vote Center in person, you can even still register.

“Voting is a privilege and an honor and people should take advantage as U.S. Citizens,” Orth said.
