We can drive up to mail boxes, ATMs, and to fast-food windows. Now in Orange County you can do drive-through voting. Imagine without ever leaving the comfort of your car. It's so SoCal!

According to, the drive-through voting will happen only on October 20th, which is the last day California residents can register to be eligible to vote in the presidential election. On that day, "drivers will pull into a voting lane where their registration will be checked and then proceed to one of six electronic polling stations where they can roll down the window and cast their vote." (Muffled responses from the ORDER HERE speaker or hanging chads not included.) This will take place in the parking lot of the Orange County registrar's office, located at 1300 South Grand Avenue in Santa Ana.

Although you can enjoy the ease of in-car voting, bear in mind you cannot order your desired candidate "animal style."
