Ten voting locations brought in more than 1,000 voters each on Wednesday, according to the elections department.

Mail-in ballots, which are expected to increase significantly this election year due to the pandemic, are not included in Tuesday’s figure and are still being counted.

To accommodate for better social distancing and a higher voter turnout, the county has set up four large polling sites at the AT&T Center, Palo Alto College, St. Paul Community Center and Alzafar Shrine Auditorium.

The AT&T Center exceeded its Tuesday record, with 2,134 ballots cast on Wednesday. Official report 1,560 people voted at the site on Tuesday.
