Santa Clara County Election Information

If you voted by mail before, your voting process will be mostly the same under the Voter’s Choice Act.

Now all voters will automatically receive a Vote by Mail (VBM) ballot. You do not need to submit a VBM request.  Ballots will be mailed about a month before the election, giving you plenty of time to mark and return your ballot when it is most convenient for you.  Please VOTE EARLY if you can.

However, if you need to request a ballot, such as a change of address, contact:
