Trinh Luu (left) from Tustin and her sister, Anh Luu (right) from Stanton, arrived at the Orange County Registrar’s office this morning at 6:30 a.m. They came to vote in person because they don’t trust voting by mail. They were the 3rd and 4th people in line.

Darice Goodwin from Santa Ana casts her ballot at the Orange County Registrar on Nov. 3, 2020. “There’s something special about voting on Election Day," she said. She appreciates all the different options for voters this year but she still felt worried about what could happen to her ballot. Goodwin wanted to make sure her vote was counted and felt more confident coming to the polls.
