Polling places are established by county elections officials. When you receive your county sample ballot booklet in the mail a few weeks before Election Day, look for your polling place address on the back cover.
If you moved to your new address after October 20, 2014, you may vote at your former polling place.
Many county elections offices offer polling place look-up assistance through websites or phone numbers. For more information, visit the Secretary of State's website at www.sos.ca.gov/elections/find-polling-place.htm or call the toll-free Voter Hotline at (800) 345-8683.
On Election Day, polls will be open from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. If you are in line before 8:00 p.m., you will be able to vote.
If your name is not on the voter list at your polling place, you have the right to vote a provisional ballot. A provisional ballot looks like a regular ballot but you will place it in a special envelope. Your provisional ballot will be counted after elections officials have confirmed that you are registered to vote in that county and you did not already vote in that election.
You may vote a provisional ballot at any polling place in the county in which you are registered to vote.
