Save time by avoiding lines at the polls on Election Day
Did you know...
Return your ballot as soon as possible to ensure your vote is included in the Election Night Results
(Ballots must be received by 8:00 p.m., Close of Polls on Election Day.)
It's your right – Section 3201 of the California Elections Code states that any voter can vote by mail. Once you apply, you'll be permanently registered and you'll automatically receive ballots in the mail within 29 days of each election in which you are eligible to vote.** You can still vote at your polling station if you wish—simply turn in your ballot and envelope at the polls and vote a regular ballot.
