On October 10, 2015, Governor Jerry Brown signed into law measures which will eventually make voter registration automatic for ALL California citizens who get or renew a California driver’s license.

Your Democratic Vote Counts

ALL voters registered in California are eligible to vote in ALL statewide and national elections. NO photo ID is required.

Polls in California open at 7 AM and close at 8 PM on election day.

IF – when you registered to vote – you initialed  the “Vote By Mail” option on your registration form, you will receive your ballot approximately 29 days prior to the election. To vote, follow the instructions on the ballot.

IF you have not received your ballot by 20 days before the election, contact the Sonoma County Clerk’s office and explain the problem.

IF you prefer to vote at your polling place and you have received a “Vote by Mail” ballot, then take that ballot to your polling place on election day, and request a new ballot.

You can cast a ballot at your polling place on Election Day regardless of any other action you may have taken. It will be a provisional ballot and will be counted last and only IF you have not voted elsewhere or elsewhen in this election. (This is NOT an invitation to cheat and be advised that there are serious consequences for voter fraud – but then we are all growing older and with our youth sometimes goes our memory).
