California residents face two questions on their ballots for the upcoming state recall election: whether to replace Gov. Gavin Newsom, and, if so, who should succeed him.
Voters have until Tuesday, Sept. 14, to either postmark their ballots, drop them off at a designated ballot box or vote in person at their local vote center. But that doesn't mean they have to wait until the 11th hour on Election Day to participate.
As usual, voters can return their ballots by mail any time prior to Election Day. Mail ballots were sent out starting the week of Aug. 16. (Voters can sign up to track their ballot's location at california.ballottrax.net/voter.) Ballots must be postmarked by Sept. 14 and received by the county election office by Sept. 21 to be counted.
Santa Clara and San Mateo counties already have opened up vote centers to allow people to vote or drop off their ballots in person ahead of Election Day on Tuesday. On Monday, vote centers in both counties will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. On Tuesday, locations will be open for extended hours from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Ballots returned in person must be dropped off by 8 p.m. on Election Day.
The voter registration deadline passed on Aug. 30, but same-day voter registration (or conditional voter registration) is available at vote centers.
Check out the list below to find out where to vote. Voters also can find the nearest ballot drop-off locations at sos.ca.gov/elections.
