This is what happens to your ballot when you vote by mail

New voting procedures in Sacramento County led to plenty of confusion. Polling places were replaced this year by voting centers, which opened today at 7 a.m.
Many people attempted to vote in the same way they have in the past. Some voters showed up to the McKinley Library drop-off location five hours before it opened at noon, with many believing it was still a polling place.
Voting procedures were business as usual in other local counties, including Yolo, Placer and El Dorado.
We'll have live results here at sacbee.com shortly after polls close tonight at 8.
