Election Day in San Bernardino County is finally here.

You can find your assigned polling place by checking our Polling Place Look-Up Tool. You can drop your voted mail ballot at any polling place or at one of more than 70 drop boxes throughout the county. You can also search for Mail Ballot Drop Box Locations.

Today, the polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Your votes will be counted accurately because our processes are transparent and open for observation, including:

  • Testing of the voting system equipment used to count ballots prior to their use in the election
  • Examination of signatures on the mail ballot return envelopes
  • Removal of the ballots from the envelopes
  • Counting of the ballots on high speed ballot scanners
  • Hand counting of at least 1 percent of the ballots to audit the accuracy of the scanners
  • Testing of the voting system equipment used to count ballots after their use in the election

Once you cast your ballot at a polling place or it is removed from your mail ballot return envelope, it cannot be identified as your specific ballot. The Registrar of Voters only tracks that you voted in the election and the method you used to cast your ballot. No one will know the votes you marked on your ballot for a candidate or measure.

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. Sign up at WheresMyBallot.sos.ca.gov.

The Registrar of Voters is required to certify the Presidential Election results by December 1, 2020.
