Sacramento County is one of five counties in California to implement the Voter’s Choice Act (VCA), expanding voting opportunities for all residents. Beginning with the June 2018 Primary Election, all registered voters will receive a ballot in the mail, and Vote Centers will be offered in place of traditional polling places. The Sacramento County Department of Voter Registration and Elections explains the voting process in three simple steps:
- Get It – All voters will be mailed a ballot starting 29 days before Election Day. Look for your pink envelope!
- Mark It – Mark your ballot and sign your envelope. Voters with disabilities can download their ballot at home using the new Accessible Vote by Mail system.
- Return It – Return your marked ballot in the mail or in person at any Vote Center or Ballot Drop Box. Vote Centers are replacing polling places, and:
- Open beginning 10 days before Election Day
- Let you decide which Vote Center to use
