Despite the pandemic and social distancing concerns, some voters did not trust their ballot would be counted if they cast it through the mail. Or, they needed help voting or just like to vote in person. While it is not conclusive, some studies have linked vote-by-mail to higher turnout. So it makes sense that Imperial County and Los Angeles County — both with lower turnout — would head the list of in-person voting.
|Small counties||Medium-sized counties||Large counties|
|Imperial County 38%||Tulare County 15%||Los Angeles County 21%|
