What is Absentee Voting?

Absentee voting allows you to vote by mail. All registered voters in California will receive an absentee ballot by mail. You can receive updates and track your California ballot status.

Though every state has absentee voting, rules on who can take part vary. To see if your state allows for absentee voting, visit the absentee & early voting website and choose your state from the dropdown menu to take you right to your state's absentee voting page. Your state may require you to have a valid excuse to vote absentee. Acceptable excuses vary by state but include: being unable to get to your polling place due to illness, injury or disability, being on business travel or vacation outside of your county or city of residence on Election Day or being a student at an out-of-state college or university.

What is In-Person Voting?

If you would like to vote in person, find your nearest polling place and its hours. Let them know if you need an accommodation for a disability.

Most states do not require you to bring your voter registration card to the polls. But two-thirds of states expect you to provide another form of ID to vote in person.

View the voter identification laws by state to find out more about your state’s voter ID requirements.

What is Conditional Voting in California?
(Same Day Voter Registration)

Same Day Voter Registration, known as Conditional Voter Registration in state law, is a safety net for Californians who miss the deadline to register to vote or who need to update their voter registration information. Eligible citizens who need to register or re-register to vote within 14 days of an election can complete this process to register and vote at their county elections office, polling place or vote center. Their ballots will be processed and counted once the county elections office has completed the voter registration verification process.

View the list of early voting and Vote-By-Mail ballot drop-off locations where you can complete the Same Day Voter Registration Process.

What is Early Voting?

Sometimes circumstances may make it hard or impossible for you to vote on Election Day but your state may let you vote during a designated early voting period. Most states, including California, have early voting. This lets registered voters vote on specified dates before Election Day.

The rules change from state to state. Make sure you know yours if you plan to vote early or in-person absentee. The best place to check is with your state or local election office. California voters can find this information on the California polling place webpage.
