Boost to absentee voters
January 3, 2015
Voters in California can now mail in their ballots on election day and have their vote counted.
In the past, ballots had to arrive at the county office before 8 p.m. on election day through the mail or by hand delivery. Ballots, though mailed before election day, that arrived afterwards were discarded.
The new law that went into effect on Jan. 1 requires that ballots arrive within three days of the election.
