Voting is Getting More Convenient in California

The California Voter’s Choice Act (VCA) was signed into law by Governor Brown in 2016.  The VCA expands early voting and offers more flexible voting opportunities to voters in participating counties.

Under the VCA, vote centers will replace traditional polling places and serve as a one-stop shop for all your voting needs. With a vote center you can:

  • Vote in person at any vote center in the county up to 10 days before Election Day;
  • Same-day voter registration;
  • Drop off a completed ballot or get a replacement ballot;
  • Vote with an accessible voting machine;
  • Get support and voting materials in multiple languages.

Madera, Napa, Nevada, Sacramento, and San Mateo counties were the first 5 counties to participate in the VCA in 2018. As of 2020, all counties now have the option of participating in the Voter’s Choice Act.  To see which counties are participating in the Voter’s Choice Act, visit the Secretary of State’s website at the link below.
