Remember to Vote! ☑️
California is holding an unusual special election this month to decide whether to recall the governor and replace him with someone else. It’s important for all eligible voters – including college students – to have their say.
It’s easy to vote: It only takes a few minutes to fill out the short ballot, but you must mail it in or drop it off by next Tuesday, Sept. 14.
- Most registered voters received their ballot in the mail last month. If you’re registered and didn’t get a ballot, contact your county election office.
- If you are 18 or older and missed the Aug. 30 deadline to register, you can still cast a conditional ballot by visiting your county election office or any official Vote Center near you.
You can fill out your ballot at home – but remember to seal, sign and date the return envelope. (Make sure your signature matches the one you provided when registering.) You can then return the ballot – no later than Tuesday, Sept. 14 – in any of these ways:
- Mail in your ballot. Postage is free!
- Drop off your ballot at an official ballot Drop Box. There's a Drop Box on the De Anza campus that is accessible from Parking Lot A – on the sidewalk outside the Registration and Student Services Building entrance that faces Stevens Creek Boulevard. Or you can check online to find a Drop Box near you.
- Bring your ballot in person to any county Vote Center. Check the county elections website to find one near you.
Voting procedures may vary in different counties; check with your county election office for more information.
