The Fresno County Office seemed quiet Tuesday. But behind the scenes, there was a lot of work going on.
Election worker, Barry Myfanglong said, "There's a lot of work...can't really say but it's a lot."
He's processing voter registration cards and by the look of it, he's swamped. But this is just the beginning, the office has 28 days left to get ready for the November election.
Fresno County Clerk, Brandi Orth said, "We're right in the in between time where everything is gonna really start hopping here."
She's expecting a lot of voters to show up at the polls and for good reason. "This is a major election, we are expecting at least a 70% turn out."
That's roughly 344,000 people and that's just counting the voters who registered before September.
Orth is hoping more polling stations will keep the lines short. In 2010 there were 114. This year there will be 272. There will also be 9 drop off locations, places where voters can just drive up and drop off ballots at the curb.
Orth said, "This is all a customer service business and we're here to make it as easy as possible for the voter."
Kenneth Andrews voted Tuesday morning. He usually votes absentee but this time around he wanted to do it in person. "We're gonna get it over with so we don't have to wait till the last minute."
Orth says this election should cost the county roughly $2 million.
