If You're In Line Before 8 PM, You Still Get To Vote, California
There have been reports today of long lines, but if you're in line and it's getting close to 8 p.m., don't give up. As long as you're in line before then in California, you still get to vote.
That includes if you're going to the polls to drop off a mail-in ballot.
If there's a line when the polls close, a poll worker will stand at the back of the line to let people arriving after 8 p.m. know that the polls have closed. But that won't apply if you're already in line.
If you were in line before the 8 p.m. hour strikes and someone tells you that the polls are closed and you cannot vote, that is illegal.
You should report it immediately the Secretary of State hotline: (800) 345-VOTE (8683).
