Every active, registered voter in California will be mailed a ballot. Voters may also vote in-person on Election Day should they wish.
Early voting is available in California, but varies based on your county. Please check to see the details of early voting in your county. Early voting typically ends the day before Election Day in most counties.
On Election Day, polls are open from 7:00 AM to 8:00 PM.
