Voters began receiving mail ballots in the mail after October 5, 2020. A prepaid-postage envelope was included in which to return your ballot. Be sure to complete all required information on the envelope. Be sure to use blue or black ink when you fill out your ballot as ballot scanners cannot read red ink. Make sure to sign and date the back of your return envelope. You can track when your ballot is mailed, received and counted through the Secretary of State’s Where’s My Ballot tracking system. You can sign up to receive notifications about the status of your mail ballot via email, text message, and/or telephone call.

Mail Ballot Drop-Box Locations. Voters can submit completed ballots at drop-box locations listed here. Voted mail ballots may also be dropped off at the Registrar of Voters office, 777 E. Rialto Avenue in San Bernardino, any early vote site, and any polling place.
