All active registered voters in California will automatically receive a mail-in ballot for the November 8, 2022 General Election. County elections offices will begin mailing ballots no later than October 10.
The last day to register in California is October 24, 2022 to be eligible to vote in the General Election.
Take a moment to make sure you’re registered to vote. Even if you previously registered to vote, you may need to re-register if you recently moved, changed your name, or haven’t voted consistently in past elections.
How To Vote
Once you fill out your ballot, simply mail it back using the included envelope. Your ballot must be postmarked by November 8th and received by November 15. Don’t forget to sign the back of the envelope!
You can drop off your vote-by-mail ballot at your county elections office, any official ballot drop box, or in-person voting location. Return your ballot by 8 pm on November 8.
Vote In Person
Didn’t receive a ballot? Was your ballot lost or damaged? You can still vote at your county elections office or at any accessible voting location in your county. Check your county elections office website for in-person voting locations.
Didn’t register to vote? In California you can now request a conditional ballot using the Same Day Registration process. Go to your county elections office or any accessible voting location during normal voting hours up until election day to vote.
