California’s primary election is on Tuesday, March 3.

This election will have a sweeping local and national impact, and we need our community’s voices to be heard!

Make sure you are educated on the issues!

The information behind various county ballot measures may be confusing and overwhelming, so we’ve made the following voter guide to help explain the ones we are supporting and opposing.

Here are answers to some questions about voting that you may have:

Q: What times will polls and voting centers be open on March 3, 2020?

A: Polls and voting centers are expected to be open continuously from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on March 3. Any voter in line at 8 p.m. is allowed to vote.

Q: Where do I go to vote?

A: Find your polling place or area voting centers here. You can also contact your county elections office or the Secretary of State’s toll-free voter hotline at 800-345-8683.

Q: Do I need to bring identification?

A: In most cases, California voters don’t need to show identification to vote on site. However, it is recommended to bring an ID if you’re a first-time voter.

Q: What if my name is missing from my voting center’s voter list?

A: You still have the right to vote with a provisional ballot.

Q: Wondering about your voter-registration status or unsure of whether you’re registered with a party?

A: You can check your status at any time here.

(NOTE: If you are registered with No Party Preference, there will be no presidential candidate on your ballot. You will have to request a crossover ballot from your county elections office, voting center or polling place.)

Q: Still need to register to vote?

A: Check out California’s Conditional (Same Day) Voter Registration, which allows those who are eligible to complete the process to register and vote at their county elections office, polling site or vote center. Ballots are processed and counted once the voter registration has been verified by the county elections office.

Q: Planning to vote by mail but haven’t had a chance to send in your ballot yet?

A: Vote-by-mail ballots must be postmarked on or before Election Day – March 3 – and received by your county elections office no later than three days after Election Day. If you are unsure if your vote-by-mail ballot will arrive in time if mailed, bring it to any polling place or voter center on Election Day.
