Voting FAQ

Voting FAQ

1. When are the polls open?
Polls are open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Election Day. Don't forget your ID!
2. Can I vote early?
Absolutely. For the all mail elections voters will automatically receive a ballot in your mailbox beginning 27 days before the election. If you are living in an area not participating in an all mail election voters on the Active Early Voting List (AEVL) will receive ballots automatically. Voters not on AEVL may also make a one-time early ballot request or visit a replacement or voting location.
3. What if I have an emergency and can't vote on Election Day?
If a voter cannot vote during the early voting period, emergency voting is available beginning 5pm the Friday before Election Day through 5pm the Monday before Election Day. Voters must sign an affidavit under penalty of perjury that they have an emergency that prevents them from voting on Election Day (voters do not need to disclose what the emergency is).
4. Do I need ID to vote early?
If you vote early by mail, ID is not required. Your signature on the early ballot affidavit is compared to your voter registration record by the County Recorder to determine if the signature is valid.

ID is required if you vote early in person, or at a polling place or voting center on Election Day.

5. How can military & overseas voters (UOCAVA) get a ballot?
Military and Overseas voters have special voting rights under federal and state law (Uniformed & Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act (UOCAVA)). These rights include the use of a Federal Post Card Application (FPCA) to register to vote and request an early ballot as well as the use of a Federal Write-In Absentee Ballot (FWAB), which serves as an emergency back-up ballot.

6. Do I have to vote everything on my ballot?
No, voters do not have to vote everything on their ballot. The votes they do cast will still be counted. However, we encourage voters to vote down the ballot as local races, propositions, judges, etc. can impact voters' daily lives.
