Preliminary voter experiences report available

We’ve posted the first preliminary study of our voter experiences survey. The preliminary report is available on the general election dashboard.

Highlights from the preliminary report:

  • We find that 87% of voters responding to our survey were confident that their vote was counted as they intended; 86% of registered voters responding to our survey indicated that they were confident that votes in Orange County were counted as intended.

  • Nearly all of our respondents indicated a positive voting experience, either in person, by mail or absentee, as we detail below. Of those who voted in person, 96% said it was very or fairly easy to find their polling place. For the by-mail voters, 95% did not have any trouble getting their ballot by mail, and 97% did not have any trouble marking their mail ballot.
