RIVERSIDE COUNTY, Calif. -

You can cast your vote early for the June 3 Primary Election at several different locations, including malls in Riverside, Palm Desert and Temecula.

Officials said early voting is available from Friday, May 23, through Sunday, May 25, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. You can vote at the Galleria at Tyler in Riverside on the first floor in front of Forever 21, at Westfield Palm Desert in the main court in front of World Gym, and the Promenade in Temecula on the first floor in front of the Macy's women's store.

Early voting is also available leading up to Election Day at the Registrar of Voters' office at 2724 Gateway Drive in Riverside. The office is open for early voting Monday through Friday (excluding holidays), from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Saturday, May 24, and Saturday May 31, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., according to election officials.

The registrar's office is open on Election Day from 7 a.m to 8 p.m.

You can either drop off a vote-by-mail ballot or access a voting unit at any of the early voting locations.

Early voting provides an opportunity for those who can't make it to the polls on Election Day and to those who want their vote to be counted first on Election Night.

Officials encourage registered voters to cast their ballot as soon as possible so they can be included in the first Election Night results which are posted shortly after 8 p.m. on June 3.
