11:15 pm
can vote by mail, but are local election offices prepared to handle 15 million mail-in ballots. stephen stock took a look at the governor's proposed plan. >> reporter: vote by mail is already very familiar here in california, where 70% of voters use the mail or vote centers when they voted in record numbers for a presidential primary back in march. even so, the governor's bovote mailman date and the covid crisis will cost millions more in money and manpower come this november. for contra costa county's 660,000 registered voters, this year's presidential election will be unlike any other. >> the train's rolling, so we're prepared for worst case right now. >> reporter: it's a first for debbie cooper, who will supervise her first election as the new county clerk recorder and registrar. >> we realize there's going to be more ballots than in the
11:16 pm
past. so we have to process and it's going to take longer. >> reporter: longer to process and count, more vote by mail ballots. because of covid safety concerns, governor gavin newsom ordered all 58 california counties to send every voter a mail-in ballot whether the counties were prepared to do so or not. the order was meant to provide every registered california voter a safe alternative to showing up at the polls in person. >> it's going to be a new experience. >> reporter: -- >> i think you're going to have a significant risk of if not human error, at least human confusion because you're trying to staff up beyond your normal capacity. >> reporter: already 14 california counties including san mateo, napa, and santa clara are voter choice counties. in other words, they've done away with the traditional precinct systems and vote by mail or drop off ballots at vote centers. but covid will still cost those
11:17 pm
counties more in extra staffing, spacing to keep distance, and hardware like plexiglas installed in offices. >> we're going to have to work hard to make sure voters know to expect their ballot in the mail in advance of the election. >> reporter: california secretary of state alex padilla oversees the election process. his office estimates it will cost at least another $129 million statewide because of the coronavirus. >> we have the baseline infrastructure and capacity established in each county. we just need to ramp up whether it's additional sorting equipment. maybe it's additional staffing, and frankly voter education is going to be a key component here. >> reporter: as for the other 44 non-voters choice counties like alameda, san francisco, and contra costa, governor newsom's order means they have to send ballots by mail to all their registered voters but also locate and staff the usual voting precincts. >> so we're determining the staffing needs. we're trying to locate poll workers, which of course is a challenge. >> reporter: while the impact is
11:18 pm
likely to be minimal in contra costa, where about 75% of residents already vote by mail, it will still cost the county what cooper estimates to be another extra $1.8 million. >> it puts us in a situation of having to have 65 in-person voting locations, which we think at least right now during this pandemic is dangerous. >> reporter: similar orders have been issued by other governors in states across the country, meaning covid-19's impact on the election could be substantial. >> we really have no choice. we have to make this transition. >> reporter: this stanford law professor has studied american law for years. >> we need to prepare for this election like we would for a natural disaster, like an earthquake or a hurricane. >> reporter: he published this paper. >> i think this is a turning point for certain states. >> reporter: he warns that covid's impact make other
11:19 pm
threats like sicyber threats an misinformation all the more severe. >> the problem is the electoral environment is one that is particularly nerve-racking these days and characterized by polarization. so there's very little room for error. >> reporter: another likely impact that everyone we talked to for this story warned us about, delays in the results of the upcoming november election. because mail-in ballots have to be opened, sorted and counted, that can take a lot longer than in the past. so if the election is close, it could be several days or even a week or longer before a winner is named. i'm stephen stock, nbc bay area news. >> thank you, stephen. if you have a story for our investigative unit, give us a call. 888-996-tips. you can also visit our website, janelle, one of the highlights of my week was jeff ranieri during our 6:00 newscast talking about the gopher problems he has in his garden eating away at some of your
