Inside a warehouse in Ponoma, California, the country’s largest vote by mail processing operation is hard at work. Setup by Los Angles Country to handle mail ballots sent this year to all of its 5.6 million registered voters, the operation employees hundreds of workers who work around the clock receiving ballots (from the Postal Service as well as from official ballot drop boxes) and, in a race against time, prepare them for tallying on election night.
