vote safe

With the November 3 General Election quickly approaching and concerns across the country of voting by mail, the City of Mission Viejo is sharing the Secretary of State’s “Vote Safe” guide with the community.  

The guide features frequently asked questions and information including how California has extended the time that vote-by-mail ballots can arrive to county elections offices for this election. Vote-by-mail ballots postmarked on or before 8 pm on Election Day can arrive up to 17 days after Election Day and be counted. 

The Secretary of State’s “Where’s My Ballot?” tracking tool is now available in every county. Voters can sign up to receive automatic notifications by text message, email or voice call on the status of their vote-by-mail ballot at WheresMyBallot.sos.ca.gov

In the past I've taken my absentee ballot to a polling place, turned it in, and voted in person. Is this still available?

I wish to take my absentee ballot to a polling place, show my ID, turn my ballot in, and vote in person and NOT DELIVER IT. Will this still be available?
