How Does it Work?
Per Governor Newsom’s Executive Order, all voters will be mailed a Vote By Mail ballot (VBM) for the November 3, 2020 Presidential General Election. Ballots can be mailed via USPS or dropped off at the 33 drop box locations or 47 In-Person Voting Locations.
In-Person Voting Locations are available for voters to register, drop off their Vote By Mail ballot, or receive a replacement ballot. Voters can request a replacement ballot if they never received or made a mistake on their original ballot. Voters can avoid long lines at In-Person Voting Locations by requesting a second VBM ballot through the mail. This request must be made by October 27, 2020 to allow enough time for postal service delivery. Second Ballot Request Form
You can go to any In-Person Voting Location in the County to receive a replacement ballot.
Additional Info & Recommendation
The ballot you receive in the mail is identical to the ballot issued at the In-Person Voting Locations.
If you prefer voting in person, we strongly recommend that you bring your Vote By Mail ballot with the return envelope with you to the In-Person Voting Location. This will save you time and keep the line moving quickly for those who have lost or never received their ballot in the mail. After marking your ballot and placing it in your signed VBM envelope, you will cast your ballot. You can also surrender your ballot to use the Touchscreen voting device.
Provisional ballots safeguard against duplicate voting. Each provisional ballot is researched to determine if a ballot was already cast by that voter. If it is found at the In-Person Voting Location that a voter has not already cast their ballot the voter will not have to vote provisionally.
Accessible Touchscreen Device
Accessible voting equipment is available at each In-Person Voting Location. The Touchscreen voting device features audio in English and Spanish, large print, and a hand-held audio-tactile interface (ATI) to help navigate and mark the ballot. A paper ballot is then printed and cast in the ballot box.
Personal Assistive Devices
The accessible Touchscreen voting device allows voters to connect a personal assistive device such as a Rocker Paddle or Sip/Puff device to help navigate the ballot.
Voters can request to vote curbside from their car. This option allows voters to park as close to the voting location as possible and vote for disability or COVID-19 needs. A Voting Location Staff will bring a Ballot Request Form for the voter to sign. A ballot, a pen, and assistance for the voter will be provided as necessary. For more information, please contact our office at (805) 654-2664.
Staff at the Voting Locations are also available to assist voters in marking or reading the ballot as needed. Facsimile ballots are available for voters to reference when marking their ballot. Translated facsimile ballots are available in Chinese, Gujarati, Tagalog, and Vietnamese.
Ballot Drop Boxes
Accessible and secure Vote By Mail drop boxes are available throughout the county. List of Drop Off Locations
