Workers sorts mailed in ballots at the County of Orange Registrar of Voters in Santa Ana, Calif., Tuesday, Oct. 28, 2008.

While groups like Why Tuesday fight hard to advocate alternative ways for voters to cast their ballots, some areas like Orange County have instituted early voting. Unfortunately only few voters showed up yesterday Orange County Registrar of Voters’ office to take advantage of the convenience. All Orange County registered voters can vote early.

"Voters came to our office in Santa Ana and we assisted 75 at our front counter," the OC Registrar of Voters’ posted on their website. "The majority of these voters requested a ballot to vote immediately because they will be traveling and out of town on Election Day."

Starting October 22, early voting expands to several locations around Orange County:

Anaheim
200 S. Anaheim Boulevard, #217 
Anaheim, CA 92805
Mon-Fri [8a-5p] CLOSED WEEKENDS
Located at the City Clerk counter on second level. Park on level 2B of the City Hall East parking structure and cross at the pedestrian bridge.
