How do I turn in my ballot this year?
Every Californian who is registered to vote will receive a vote-by-mail ballot. This year, most of our neighborhood polling stations won’t be open to deliver our ballots. Here’s how you can make sure your vote is received and counted!

Mail your ballot through the US Postal Service, make sure it will still be postmarked by November 3rd. [No Stamps Needed for the November 2020 election!]

If you don’t want to rely on the mail, there are six (6) Ballot Drop Boxes around the city and starting Oct 31st, there will be nine (9) Accessible Voting Locations (bigger than a typical precinct polling place.
