You Can Have Your Voice Heard in the Primary Election!

Voting by Mail: Voters who are not affiliated with any political party, and who are on the Permanent Early Voting List (PEVL) will NOT automatically receive a ballot for a Partisan Primary Election. But, if you want to vote by mail you can still do so. You need to contact your County Recorders office and request an early ballot for the Party Primary of your choice.

Voting in Person: If you want to vote on the day of the election at your designated polling place and are not affiliated with any political party, simply show up at your polling place and tell the poll workers which Party Primary you would like to vote in.
