What to know before you vote: Our one-on-one with RIVCO Registrar of Voters Art Tinoco


News Channel 3 is helping you get ready to vote ahead of California’s March 5 Presidential Primary Election. This year’s electoral process will be lead by Riverside County Registrar of Voters Art Tinoco. 

Tinoco permanently took on the position last December, following the resignation of Rebecca Spencer. However, his time with the office spans more than 22 years. 

The Riverside County Registrar of Voters office have sent 1.3 million vote-by-mail ballots ahead of election day. Voters have options for where they can drop off their ballot, including at official drop-off box locations, or by mail.

Tinoco and his office have been working to address any questions or concerns raised by voters across the county before ballots are cast.  

“If you could get the results faster instead of all the paperwork that they do it takes forever just like anything in the government. They’re slow," according to Thousand Palms resident Al Betancourt.

News Channel 3's Jennifer Franco spoke one-on-one with Tinoco about what he is prioritizing in his role and what change he and his team are implementing this election year.

Tune in tonight at 6:00 p.m. for the full report.
