Riverside County Registrar Accepts Responsibility for Rancho Mirage Library Polling Problems

Posted: Updated:
Rancho Mirage, CA -

Dozens of voters lined up in front of the Rancho Mirage Library this morning only to be told the precinct was not prepared to open.

People in line were told to wait or to go to the Braille Institute to vote, but were sent back.

The location was back and running by 7:42 a.m. 

The Riverside County Registrar posted a statement on their Facebook page: "The polling place located at the Rancho Mirage Public Library was delayed in opening this morning due to the Inspector arriving late for duties. The Inspector is the lead poll worker with custody of the ballots and roster of voters. The polling place was open and operational by 7:42am. The delay did not involve the City of Rancho Mirage in any way and we’re sorry that some voters were inconvenienced. As always, we appreciate use of the city library as a polling place."
