How does voting change with new Voters Choice Act?
What is it? You choose when, where, and how to vote.
I vote by mail
Nothing changes! All registered voters will receive a ballot in the mail the week of February 3rd. You can mail your completed ballot (no postage required) or put it in a Ballot Drop Off box.
I like to vote in person
While you will get a ballot in the mail, you can go to any Vote Center in Santa Clara County to resolve issues, ask questions or drop off your ballot. Vote Centers are mini-Registrar of Voter sites staffed by employees (not volunteers). Some will open 11 days before the elections with most opening the Saturday before the election. See below for a full list of their services.
You can go to any Vote Center in Santa Clara County.
