Statewide Direct Primary Election, June 7, 2022

Cathy Darling Allen, County Clerk/Registrar of Voters, wants to remind the public of deadlines for the Statewide Direct Primary Election on June 7, 2022.


County Voter information guides were mailed to voters on April 29, 2022.


As a reminder, new state law requires us to mail every active registered voter a vote by mail ballot.  Ballots will be placed in the mail today, May 9, 2022. 


Ballots are not forwardable through the USPS.  If you have moved and need to update your voter registration, visit registertovote.ca.gov to confirm or update your voter registration. The voter registration deadline is Monday, May 23, 2022. 


This ballot has 2 cards (pages) with contests on both sides of each card. Local candidates are on the back side of the second card.  Remember to vote and return both cards of your ballot.


How you return your ballot is your choice.


Vote in person:


If you choose to vote in person, bring your ballot and return envelope with you.  This will help ensure the security of the election and provide you with the smoothest experience as you cast your ballot.


Early voting begins on Monday, May 9, 2022 at the Elections Department office at 1643 Market Street. The office is open Monday through Friday, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. On Election Day, the office is open 7:00 am 8:00 pm on Election Day. The office will also be open Saturday, June 4, 2022 for voting and all clerk services, including passports, from 9:00 am-3:00 pm.


On Election Day, polling places will be open from 7:00 am – 8:00 pm.  Check the back cover of your voter information guide to confirm the location of your polling place.  Many voters have new polling places due to 2021 Redistricting.


When mailing or dropping your ballot off, you must return it in a vote by mail return envelope. 


Mail  your ballot:


Return your ballot by mail.  Postage is paid on the return envelope.  It must be postmarked on or before Election Day June 7, 2022 and received by our office before June 14, 2022.
