All Vote Centers are Now Open


All 30 Sacramento County Vote Centers are now open for the September 14, 2021 California Gubernatorial Recall Election. Please visit the Vote Center page on our website for information on locations, and days and hours of operation. Any eligible resident of Sacramento County can visit any Vote Center location to request a ballot, register to vote or update their registration, receive voting assistance, or vote with the accessible voting equipment. All Vote Centers will be open 7:00 a.m. until 8:00 p.m. on Election Day.

Voters wishing to return their mail ballot still have time to use a Ballot Drop Box. Visit the Ballot Drop Box page on our website for more information on locations near you. Please check the times of locations carefully; each Ballot Drop Box location and Vote Center has specific hours of operation. Remember, the ballot envelope must have the voter's signature.

Those preferring to mail their ballot may use their pink, postage paid Vote by Mail envelope. Ballots must be postmarked on or before Election Day and received by 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, September 22, 2021. The ballot envelope must have the voter's signature.

If a registered voter has not yet received their ballot and cannot make it out to a Vote Center, voters may use the Accessible Vote by Mail system. This allows voters to access their ballot online, download it, and print it out. It also includes a return envelope template. Internet and printers are required to use this system but any registered voter may use this method to ensure their voice is heard.
