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 Santa Clara County Registrar of Voters, 1555 Berger Drive, Bldg 2 San Jose, CA 95112, 1-408-299-VOTE (8683) or 1-866-430-VOTE (8683).

If you prefer to vote at your polling place and you have received a “Vote by Mail” ballot, then take that ballot to the Polling place and request a new ballot.

In any event you may 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 otherwise voted in this election. (This is NOT an invitation to cheat and be advised that there are serious consequences for voter fraud.)
