Florida is a closed primary state, which means only Democrats can vote in the Democratic primary and only Republicans can vote in the Republican primary.
Bill Cowles, the county's supervisor of elections, says it helps make sure voters who can't come in during normal business hours can still meet the deadline.
"We've been training workers, we've been preparing materials, and we've been also communicating to the voters all of these things so they'll go and participate in the election," Cowles said.
Orange County has non-partisan contests on the ballot, so even third-party voters or those with no party affiliation will have something to vote on.
