Your Voice, Your Choice

The California Voter’s Choice Act became law in 2016 and was enacted to make voting more convenient and accessible for all voters. Currently 74% of Calaveras County voters vote by mail. With the Voter’s Choice Act, every registered voter will receive a vote by mail ballot.  This gives each voter the option to return their ballot by mail, at a vote center, or ballot drop box location. Voters also have the ability to vote in-person or receive assistance at any vote center in the county.  Three vote centers in the county will be open three days prior to Election Day allowing voters to vote on a day that fits into their busy schedules. The list below details some of the other conveniences of adopting the Voter’s Choice Act.

 

  • You choose how to vote: through the mail, ballot drop location, or in-person vote center.
     
  • You choose when to vote: you now have 11 days (including Election Day) to vote at one of two locations in Calaveras County, another two locations will be open for voting 4 days (including Election Day). Each vote center will be open 8 hours, 8am-4pm and 13 hours on Election Day, 7am-8pm.  
       
  • You can vote at any vote center in the County: you are not limited to only one location.  
     
  • Get the support you need: Vote Center staff will be there to help you have a great voting experience, including providing access to Spanish language translators, helping those with disabilities and updating your registration if needed.
