Election Day is Tuesday, November 8th. The people we put in office have tremendous power when it comes to reproductive health, rights, and access. Read on for more information on how, where and when you can submit your ballot this November:

What You Need to Know

All registered voters in California will receive a vote-by-mail ballot for the November 8, 2022 general election mid-October. Though all voters will have an opportunity to vote by mail before Election Day, there will also be in-person voting locations for those who prefer voting at a polling place. 

If you’re already a permanent vote-by-mail voter, nothing will change for you. You will still receive your ballot in your mailbox and be able to turn it in via mail, at your County Registrar of Voters, at a designated mail ballot drop-off site, or at an in-person polling place.

Your Vote, Your Voice, Your Choice

In person: For this election, you can register to vote and vote on the same day, from anywhere in your county, even if you are at a polling location not normally assigned to you on Election Day! Residents of San Diego or Riverside Counties can access their voting centers up to 10 days prior to Election Day. Polls for all other counties will be open for in person voting Tuesday, November 8th. Find your – or a more convenient – polling place here.

Vote by mail: In California, every active registered voter will automatically receive a ballot in the mail before every election. Be sure to check your voter registration status to ensure you receive your ballot. Remember to sign and seal your ballot before you return it. Your ballot must be postmarked on or before Election Day, and received no later than 7 days after Election Day. Track your vote-by-mail ballot by signing up to receive text, email, or voice status alerts. 

Use a drop box: Return your ballot to a secure drop off location anywhere in your county up to 28 days before the election. Ballots must be delivered no later than the close of polls at 8:00 p.m. on Election Day, November 8th.

Because states can now ban abortion, and many are doing so – it is critical that you exercise your right to vote. We must continue protecting our ability to make decisions about our bodies. California has made it more accessible than ever before to vote. Polls will be open on Election Day, Tuesday, November 8, until 8:00 p.m.
