The California Primary Election is taking place on March 3, 2020, opposed to in June as it has in the past. Remember to check your voter registration status to ensure it is correct or register to vote if you have not already. 


Voter’s Choice Act

California has passed the Voter’s Choice Act which will eliminate traditional polling places for elections this year. Instead this year each County will have hundreds of designated “voting centers.” An individual is no longer assigned a polling place but can use any voting center in the County at their convenience. Every voter will be mailed a ballot that they can return by mail, drop off completed at any voting center, or fill out a ballot in person at a voting center. Voting centers will open three days before the election giving time and options to vote when they please.


2020 Census

At the start of every decade, the United States embarks on accurately counting our population through a new census. The census is important because it provides the basis for allocating congressional seats, redistricting, and distributing more than $675 billion in federal funds annually to support states, counties and communities’ vital programs — impacting housing, education, transportation, employment, health care, and public policy. So when a census taker approaches you at home or on the street please take the time to accurately report the information they ask for about your household.
