The Voter’s Choice Act changes how in-person voting works in Santa Clara County and is effective with the March 2020 primary.
I vote by mail – nothing changes.
- All registered voters will receive a ballot in the mail starting the week of February 3rd.
- Completed ballots can be mailed (no postage necessary) or put in a Ballot Drop Off box or taken to a Vote Center. Find Vote Centers and Ballot Drop Off Boxes
