New Website Domain
Published on Thu, 01/06/2022 - 08:59
We have changed our website domain - our website is now www.ocfelections.gov.
Elections and security experts agree that a dot gov domain is preferred for elections office websites. There are more restrictions and requirements to obtain a dot gov than a dot com domain, and more government security support for dot gov websites.
"We are always working to improve operations and security measure," said Bill Cowles, Orange County Supervisor of Elections. "Changing our domain is just one more step in that process."
We hope the change reinforces for our voters that their elections office is the trusted source for accurate election information.
This domain change comes soon after other website updates. Recently, our website was certified accessible by Lighthouse Works, according to WCAG 2.0 AA standards.
