Voting by Mail?

How do I vote by mail?

California mails a ballot to every registered voter a few weeks before the election. Keep an eye on the mailbox, and be sure to mail it back or drop it in a drop-box before Election Day, Nov. 8!
• Fill out your ballot
• After you have voted, insert your ballot in the envelope provided, making sure you complete all required information on the envelope.
• You may return your voted ballot by mail, in person, or to a drop box
• If you are returning your ballot by mail, it must be postmarked on or before Election Day and received by your county elections office no later than 7 days after Election Day.
• If you are returning your ballot in person or dropping it in a drop box, it must be delivered no later than the close of polls at 8:00 p.m. on Election Day.
• Anyone may return your ballot for you, as long as they do not get paid on a per ballot basis. In order for your ballot to be counted, you must fill out the authorization section found on the outside of your ballot envelope.
