Check Your Ballot Status
Voting by mail this November? You can track your ballot to make sure it's been received. Check your mail ballot status below.
This year, due to the COVID 19 pandemic, California has become a mail-ballot state, meaning that all registered voters will receive a vote-by-mail ballot for the November 3rd General Election. Though everyone will have an opportunity to vote by mail in November, 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. If you normally vote in-person, you will have the opportunity to vote by mail in November. There will also be limited in-person coting sites located throughout your County.
How does mail voting work?
Voting by mail is easy, efficient, and will allow us to vote from the safety of our homes. Mail ballots will be sent the address you registered to vote in in early October. Once you fill out your ballot, you have several options to turn it in:
- You can send in your ballot by mail. Mailed ballots must be postmarked on or before November 3, 2020. No stamps are required to mail in your ballot. Make sure to date and sign your ballot so that it is counted.
- Your ballot can also be dropped off at your County Registrar of Voters until 8pm on Election Day, November 3rd.
- Lastly, you can turn in your ballot at any polling location until 8pm on Election Day, November 3rd.
- If you're mailing your ballot and want it to be counted by Election Day, make sure to allow extra time (about two weeks) for it to be received.
How will I know if my mail ballot is received?
Sending your mail ballot is very safe. You can always check out the status of your ballot by clicking on the County you live in to find out if your mail ballot has already been received and your vote has been counted.
