Orange County Primary Elections, Tuesday August 23rd

August 1, 2022

After the 2020 census, redistricting was required and many voters' districts may have changed. This means that some of your elected representatives may change as well. All voters should have received a new voter information card in the mail that shows their new districts and, if applicable, new assigned polling place. Voter information cards were mailed in early July - if you did not receive yours, please contact Orange County Supervisor of Elections at 407-836-2070.
