A line of voters stood Tuesday morning in front of the McKinley Library in East Sacramento waiting for it to open.
The library, a longtime polling place, has been relegated to a dropbox location as part of a new system approved by state legislators in 2016.
Unlike polling places or the new vote centers, dropbox locations are only open during regular office or business hours. Since McKinley Library doesn't open until noon on Tuesdays, that also meant voters couldn't drop off ballots until that hour.
"People are in the habit of voting the way they voted last time," said Kim Alexander, president and founder of the California Voter Foundation.
