Registered voters are being sent a vote-by-mail ballot across California for the June 7, 2022 primary elections.
According to KTLA 5, every registered voter will be getting a ballot in the mail due to a law signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom to ensure that all voters can return their ballots either by mail, at a secure drop box, or in person. All counties will have an open ballot drop-off location for vote-by-mail ballots and there will be early voting sites set to be open from today until June 6.
Polls will be open in California from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Election Day, June 7. If you mail in your ballot, it must be postmarked on or before Election Day and needs to be received by county elections offices no later than seven days after June 7. Voter can go to WheresMyBallot.sos.ca.gov to track their vote-by-mail ballot.
