BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — Thousands of Kern County residents are expected to participate in Super Tuesday.

Votes will be cast for presidential, congressional primaries and for state and local contests as well.

The polls open at 7 a.m. Tuesday and will conclude at 8 p.m.

There will be several polling stations operating tomorrow across the county. Those locations can be found at

Sam Mahood, a spokesman for Secretary of State Alex Padilla says voters will not need any form of identification in most cases.

"The rare case where you will need some form of identification or proof of residency is if it's your first federal election and you registered to vote, but did not provide a driver's license, social security number or state I.D."

If you are in line at a polling station before 8 p.m., Mahood said you can still cast your vote past the deadline.

For individuals who would like to vote, but haven't registered, the Kern County Elections Office says they will allow people to conditionally register at polling stations Tuesday.
