Because of the coronavirus pandemic, Gov. Gavin Newsom has ordered that all California
voters should be able to vote by mail this November. That means election officials
will send a mailable ballot to all registered voters in early October.
You should receive your ballot in the mail by mid-October 2020. You'll then have three
ways to vote:
Mail in your ballot as soon as you fill it out – but no later than Election Day. (Postage is free.)
Drop off your ballot at a county drop box, as soon as you fill it out – but no later than Election Day
Visit any Vote Center in your county
You no longer have to vote in the precinct where you live.
Vote Centers will be open starting Oct. 31
Remember to wear a face mask and observe social distancing!
