Voting is Now Easier than Ever in Santa Clara County!

Voters Choice

It’s called the Voter’s Choice Act, and it emphasizes convenience for the modern voter. Everyone will get a ballot that they can return postage-paid by mail, which is by far the most popular way to vote, or they can place it in one of 99 conveniently located and secure drop-boxes. Voters who prefer to vote in person can still do so at any of the more than 110 Vote Centers that will be open throughout Santa Clara County – some for up to 11 days.  Remember, now it is Election Day every day between February 22nd and March 3rd!

People can vote near where they work, go to school or while running errands! The Vote Centers will offer a full spectrum of services, from language and accessibility assistance to ballots printed on demand for any voter, with all the contests that apply to any residential address in the County. There are electronic poll books to keep track of who has voted, and even voter registration all the way up through Election Day.

Take advantage of the extra time and convenience afforded by the new Voter’s Choice Act, which starts with the March 3, 2020, Presidential Primary Election. It’s a positive change that offers voters a choice: Choose when, where and how to vote.
