The last statewide numbers, updated Thursday, show roughly 33,000 voters had so far cast ballots, either via mail or voting early in-person.

Paul Mitchell, vice president of data firm Political Data Inc., expects turnout in California to be around 50%, roughly the same as in the 2016 primary, with most people voting Tuesday.

Yet Michael Vu, the county's Registrar of Voters, is encouraging more voters to get a jump on Election Day by casting ballots over the weekend and Monday, at the registrar's office or at four new satellite registrar locations. If you're registered to vote, you can look up your polling place online and head out to vote anytime between 7 a.m. and 8 p.m.

Ballots picked in person at a clerk's office can not be given to anyone other than the voter.

Some examples of identification include a Florida driver's license, an ID card issued by the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, U.S. passport, debit or credit card, military ID or a student ID.

There are also early voting locations throughout Utah Country which will allow you to cast your vote before Mar 3.

The Super Tuesday primaries - where almost a third of delegates are up for grabs - are run at the state and local level, and now, a uniform national response to voter disruptions does not exist. Virginia, North Carolina, Alabama and Colorado also cast ballots. They are given a nonpartisan ballot that lists no presidential candidates unless they specifically request a ballot from one of the three parties that allows them to vote in their presidential contests without re-registering: Democratic, Libertarian or American Independent.

"We're definitely trying to give voters another couple of options to still get their vote out but not have to interact, if they didn't want to, with the public", Gardner said. However, ballots picked up on Monday from local clerks must be fill out and turned in immediately; they cannot be taken home.
