OXNARD, Calif. - It's not a trick or a treat, but in-person voting begins at 48 locations on Halloween day in Ventura County.

There are usually about 400 polling locations, but due to the pandemic people can visit any of the 48 between Oct. 31 and Election Day.

One of the locations is the Elite Theatre on Victoria Avenue in Oxnard.

Technical Director Pat Lawler climbed a ladder to fix the lighting on Friday.

"I think it is interesting, I am here adjusting the lights so that the voting blooths have enough illumination, and I think it's interesting that for once the visitors are receiving the lighting instead of the actors on stage."

Another crew of tech guys worked for several hours preparing the theater for voters so that they can easily and safely vote in person or drop off ballots.

The polling places will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

On Monday and Tuesday, they will open earlier and stay open later from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

As long as voters are in line by 8 p.m. Tuesday they will be able to vote.
