San Luis Obispo County shares ballot count progress during Election Day

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. - The November 2020 election is bringing in vote-by-mail ballots each day.

San Luis Obispo County Clerk-Recorder Tommy Gong says as of Monday more than 117,000 ballots were cast.

He says this is a major jump from the number of ballots normally received the day before an election.

"During a typical election, at most we might have 60,000 ballots counted," said Gong.

Registered voters can vote in person during a four-day period beginning this past Saturday and on Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 3 at 8:00 p.m.

Ballots can be dropped off at any of the Voter Service Centers instead of assigned polling places.

Ballots are also accepted at 19 official dropbox locations.

Voters are still able to mail in ballots.

The ballots must be received 17 days after Election Day to remain eligible to be counted.
