Placer County gears up for Nov. 3 general election, voter information guides distributed

Published on Sept. 30, 2020


In preparation for the Nov. 3 general election, the Placer County Elections Office has distributed voter information guides to registered voters in Placer County.

The guide provides information on candidates and ballot measures as well as important information on voter options in the upcoming election.

This election, due to the pandemic, voters can choose to mail in their ballot through the U.S. Postal Service, drop off their ballot at secure drop boxes located around the county or vote in-person at voting locations, called voter service centers.

Voters choosing to drop off their ballot can find drop box locations in the voter information guide or on the Placer County Elections Office website, here. Ballots can be dropped off from Oct. 6 through Nov. 3.

Voters choosing to vote in-person can find voter service center locations listed in the voter information guide or the Placer County Elections Office website, here.

Placer County residents can vote at any county voter service center. Voter service centers will be open Oct. 31 through Nov. 3.

Voters are encouraged to vote early to avoid long lines on Election Day.
