As a registered voter, you will receive two booklets in the mail. These include nonpartisan information, which means they just give the facts and do not try to convince you to vote one way or the other.
- A Sample Ballot that lists all of the candidates and measures that will be on your ballot. It also shows where your polling place will be.
- The Voter Registration Guide tells you about statewide candidates and ballot measures.
Talk about the issues and candidates with your family and friends. Read or listen to news about the election to help you decide. Mark your choices on the Sample Ballot and take it with you when you vote.
Cast your ballot
You may vote in person at your polling place or you may request an absentee ballot by mailing in the form that comes with the Sample Ballot. Your request must be received by the county elections office at least one week before the election.
Riverside County is one of many that allows you to vote before election day. Check with the county elections office for early voting locations at www.voteinfo.net
