It was a quiet start to Election Day at the San Luis Obispo County Government Center Tuesday morning as voters started to trickle in to drop-off their ballots.

San Luis Obispo resident Brittany Gann voted in-person.

"We felt like it would be safe," Gann said.

Gann said social distancing was in place at the voting center and that she didn't have to wait in any long lines before casting her vote.

"We wanted to show the kids the experience," Gann said, referring to her younger children she brought with her. "They were so excited, they thought they were going to be able to vote, but they were happy with their stickers."

Gann's children received "Future Voter" stickers.

Close to 8:30 a.m., cars lined up in front of the government center so voters could drop their ballots off to poll workers in exchange for an "I Voted" sticker. Others showed up on bike and on foot to deliver their ballot.

Voting centers across the Central Coast are open until 8 p.m. Tuesday.
