SENATE DISTRICT 1 SPECIAL GENERAL ELECTION UPDATE

Voter Registration Deadline Approaching


Sacramento County Voter Registration and Elections (VRE) reminds residents in State Senate District 1 that Monday, May 20, 2019 is the last day to register to vote, update voter's residential address or change party affiliation for the June 4, 2019, Senate District 1 Special General Election.

Residents are encouraged to register online or pick-up a voter registration card at any Sacramento County Public Library, post office or the Elections Office at 7000 65th Street, Suite A, Sacramento. In order to be a registered voter, the voter registration form must be filled out completely, signed and postmarked by May 20, 2019, or hand-delivered to the Elections Office by 5:00 p.m. by May 20, 2019.

Residents who are unsure of their voter registration status may use the voter registration lookup system​ or call the elections office.

Eligible residents who miss the May 20 registration deadline may complete a voter registration form available at the Elections Office or at any Vote Center. Upon completion of the form, a VRE representative will provide the individual with a Conditional Voter Registration (CVR) provisional ballot which must be voted at the time and location it is received. Once the registration form has been processed and eligibility is verified the CVR ballot is counted.

Voters are encouraged to sign their pink Vote by Mail (VBM) envelope and return their ballots early in order for their ballot to be counted. Information on the days and hours of operation for Ballot Drop Boxes or upcoming Vote Centers is available on the VRE website at www.Elections.SacCounty.net, or you may use the links in the Key Election Dates below.
